Comedian and Middlesbrough fan Bob Mortimer has expressed his deep regret at the club selling Adama Traore to Wolves.

Wolves signed Traore from the Championship side for a fee which will total £18 million.

 

Traore impressed at Middlesbrough last season after signing from Aston Villa in a swap deal with Albert Adomah.

Mortimer described Traore's exit as 'sad' and described him as a generational talent.

 

The comments are certainly encouraging for Wolves fans who hope the club can help Traore fulfil his potential.

He was highly rated at Barcelona as a youngster before making the surprise switch to Aston Villa.

Wolves added to Traore's arrival with a deadline day move for Leander Dendoncker.
