Striker Benik Afobe is hurt by claims from Championship Wolves that he was not trying during his final five months at the club before his £9m move to Bournemouth.
Speaking to fans on Wednesday, Wolves head of football development and recruitment Kevin Thelwell said: "Benik was no longer trying to play for us.
"That was undermining everything we were trying to achieve."
But the 22 year old responded on Twitter: "I wasn't going to comment but this is too shocking and very hurtful."
"I did my best," added Afobe, who turns 23 on Friday. "It was hard for us all. I asked to leave but only because I wanted to play in the Premier League, but I never told my team-mates or disrupted the changing room."
Wolves chief executive Jez Moxey told BBC WM: "He insisted on moving. We were forced into doing a deal that we didn't want to do.
"We had said publicly that Benik would not be sold this season. It was a statement of intent and the owner [Steve Morgan] backed us completely."
