Tomasz Frankowski’s future may soon be resolved, one way or another.
The final piece of Glenn Hoddle’s jigsaw spent the last season on loan to Segunda Liga side CF Tenerife, where after scoring on his home debut, saw his season dominated by injuries.
Tenerife have previously expressed an interest in making the move permanent, but have baulked at any fee, partially due to Franek not being fully fit, partly due to the strikers 33 years.
Earlier this week Jez Moxey said ‘we have been speaking to Tomasz`s people with a view to trying to resolve the situation.”
Whether that involves another stint at Molineux is debatable.
If that hinges on Mick McCarthy’s initial assessment of the £1.4million signing then the smart money would say not, although McCarthy is well known for offering players clean slates under the right circumstances.
But if no acceptable offers are made for the striker, McCarthy may be forced to accept Frankowski back in the fold, earning the wages that Wolves would have to, in part forfeit, to cancel the remaining 12 months on his contract.
The question of whether Frankowki could make more of an impression at Molineux second time around has no easy answers. He would be returning to a much different side from teh one he first joined, and the one that he left. Would the benefits of wing supply and attacking midfield support see a return to his once prolific goalscoring and afford him the opportunity to silence his harshest critics?
Personally, I’d like to see him get the chance. Form is temporary , and even on the worst run of his career Franek showed flashes of what might have been, but I won’t be staking any houses on it happening.
