The curious case of Leo Bonatini continues to rumble along at Wolverhampton Wanderers and the Brazilian has given his biggest indication yet that his time at the Molineux could soon come to an end. Having come into the club is a blaze of goalscoring glory, his form quickly dried up and having struggled with an end product in recent times, he found himself shipped out to Nottingham Forest during the January transfer window.
With many fans believing we would move him on permanently as we looked to strengthen at the top of the pitch, the 24-year-old has only featured four times for Martin O’Neill’s side (one start) and he’s yet to find the net, but he’s impressed their fans with his efforts it seems.
In a recent interview with the Birmingham Mail Bonatini explained that he was ready to draw the curtain down on his spell with us and he was hopeful that the City Ground outfit would take up their option to turn the deal permanent come the summer.
Asked if he’d like to stay with his loan club.
“Yes, of course. It is a really good team and they have very good conditions here. Even if we don’t achieve the play-offs and we are staying in the Championship next season, I would like to stay because I have found it really good. But of course I know that it is not just about me; I have a contract with Wolves. But I am enjoying being here. I think it depends how I finish the season here. Wolves are doing well, too. I don’t know. It’s something we’ll just have to wait until the summer.”
Probably the best outcome for all really.
