Nicolai Boilesen sends message on Twitter to clarify situation surrounding Wolves medical

Ajax

Nicolai Boilesen claims he did not have a medical at Wolverhampton Wanderers on Monday.

Ajax defender Nicolai Boilesen has taken to Twitter to state that he was in Amsterdam on Monday, and not in England for a medical with Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Wolves have already added Polish forward Michal Zyro this month, but having sold star striker Benik Afobe to Bournemouth, manager Kenny Jackett has money to spend, and is looking to strengthen other areas of his squad during this month's transfer window.

Left back is an area that Jackett is seemingly keen to improve, and Ajax outcast Boilesen appears to be his top transfer target for that position.

Boilesen, who joined Ajax from Brondby as a teenager, was schooled at the famed Ajax academy before stepping up into the first team, but he has been frozen out this season.

The 23-year-old is out of contract at the end of the season, and having refused to sign a new deal, he has been completely left out of the team by manager Frank de Boer, with a January departure seemingly inevitable.

The Express and Star reported on Monday that Wolves were closing in on a £300,000 deal for Boilesen, and initially reported that the Danish international was heading to England for a medical.

However, after a number of questions about the situation on Twitter, Boilesen used the social media website to clarify that he was in Amsterdam, training at Ajax's De Toekomst training complex.

Boilesen may not have been for a medical on Monday, but it seems that his move to Wolves is drawing ever closer, giving Jackett another coup from Europe after snapping up Zyro earlier this month.

With an alleged £300,000 transfer fee, Boilesen could be a real bargain for Wolves, but his injury problems have stunted his development in recent years, whilst he could also be somewhat rusty having made no appearances so far this season.
