Oleksandr Zinchenko has rejected a £16 million move to Wolverhampton Wanderers in favour of staying at Manchester City, the Daily Mail reports (Thursday 9th August live blog, 10:17).
And according to the Daily Telegraph (Thursday 9th August live blog, 10:43), the 21-year-old was scheduled for a medical at Wolves this morning, but failed to show with personal terms believed to be the issue.
Wolves had long been credited with interest in Zinchenko, who reports claimed was also a target for fellow new boys Fulham.
The Ukrainian can operate in multiple positions - predominantly central midfield and left wing-back - although it is unclear where Wolves were intending to play him.
And the Molineux side are being strongly linked with a move for Leander Dendoncker, the Anderlecht midfielder, while Layvin Kurzawa, the Paris Saint-Germain left-back, has also been name-checked within the last 24 hours.
Zinchenko played 14 times for Manchester City last season en route to winning the Premier League and EFL Cup, and will be hoping to build on that this coming campaign - if he remains in Lancashire.
Would the Manchester City midfielder have been a good addition for Wolves?
