No Premier League interest in Wolves striker Afobe

Wolverhampton Wanderers manager Kenny Jackett has revealed the Championship club have not received any formal offers from Premier League teams for striker Benik Afobe.

Norwich City's tabled a £10million offer for Afobe during the summer transfer window, only to see their advances rebuffed by Wolves who were reportedly seeking closer to £14million for the 22-year-old.

Premier League strugglers Aston Villa have also been credited with recent interest in Afobe.

However, Jackett told Wolves' official website there has been no further interest shown in Afobe as the January window approaches.

"There have been no offers or approaches from any clubs," Jackett said.

"Until that happens, nothing happens. Should it build up like last time we'll have to see. As it stands there's nobody making any enquiries, it's all quiet on that front."

The former Arsenal youngster has scored seven goals in 20 league appearances for 14th-placed Wolves this season.
