Failed Wolves target Nicolai Boilesen explains decision to wait for perfect club

Ajax Amsterdam Stadium

The former Ajax club captain has been linked with Wolves this month.

It had appeared for much of this month that Wolverhampton Wanderers were all set to bring in an impressive looking signature. The player in question was Danish international left-back Nicolai Boilesen.

The talented defender was once a highly coveted player but his career has taken a step back this season. Out of contract in the summer, his refusal to sign a new deal has seen him frozen out at Dutch giants Ajax.

It looked as though Wolves were set to bring him in this month but a deal for the player never came off, as reported by the Express & Star this week.

Now Boilesen himself has been discussing his future and confirmed he is waiting for the right offer to come in, even if it means waiting until being a free agent in the summer.

He told Goal.com:

"Of course I want to leave Ajax right now, but it might not happen, so the most important thing is not to panic.

“Finding the perfect place to be is not easy, and especially not in the January transfer window.

“We are looking for the perfect club, where I can continue to develop myself as a player at a high level,” he continued. “I am not looking at money and I never have been. When I first signed for Ajax, I didn’t even know my salary. My only focus was on football – and it remains that way."

Wolves therefore, it would seem, were simply not the club for Boilesen. He perhaps feels the Championship is a step down and maybe he will be fortunate enough to receive offers from the Premier League in the coming months.

If not, he may regret deciding that Wolves was not for him.
