It would make little sense for Wolves to sell Conor Coady at this stage of the transfer window, says Express & Star journalist Luke Hatfield.
According to Football Insider, Tottenham have opened talks to sign the centre-back as his former manager Nuno Espirito Santo continues the revamping of Spurs’ defence.
The north London club recently signed Cristian Romero from Atalanta, while his team-mate at the Gewiss Stadium Pierluigi Gollini has also been brought in to strengthen the goalkeeper position.
Will Coady remain at Wolves?
Ultimately, given their Wolves connection, it is not a surprise to see rumours about Coady linking up with Nuno once again. For the Midlands club to sanction a sale this late in the window, though, would be a silly thing to do in the eyes of Hatfield.
“For Wolves, it would make very little sense to sell now,” Hatfield told TT. “I think Wolves would be a little bit silly to let Conor Coady go unless a massive offer came in for him purely because you’ve got so little time to replace the player.
“We’ve still got two or three weeks until the transfer window closes, but it’s much harder to get a deal over the line than many people might think.”
It is certainly something for Wolves to think about if Tottenham do end up coming in with a bid for their captain, with the new season practically here.
