Wolves boss Kenny Jackett has insisted that former Arsenal striker Benik Afobe is not for sale at any price amid interest from Aston Villa.
Afobe already has two goals in three games this season, and has continued to impress since leaving the Emirates behind.
Naturally, that has led to interest from other Premier League clubs, with Villa amongst those that have been mentioned on more than one occasion.
However, Jackett was clear in his assessment of the situation and is adamant that his striker will be going nowhere with just two weeks remaining in the transfer window.
“He is happy here, he works hard and has a central role and place in the team. A lot of people ask me about him and about his future but we bought him to Wolves to work with him and for us to be successful,” he told Sky Sports.
The 22-year-old netted 13 times last season after arriving from Arsenal in a £2m deal. He ended the campaign with 32 goals in total after scoring 19 during his loan spell with the MK Dons.
Jackett’s comments will be a blow for Tim Sherwood who if reports are to be believed, still doesn’t feel as though he has enough options up front despite signing Rudy Gestede and Jordan Ayew this summer.
