When Wolves chief executive Jez Moxey spoke about Vadim Demidov earlier this week, he didn’t sound too confident about the prospect of the defender signing.
Wolverhampton Wanderers held personal talks with Vadim Demidov on Tuesday after agreeing a fee with Real Sociedad for the 25-year-old central defender.
But after the Norwegian International had flown into England with his agent to hold talks with Moxey, the CEO played down our chances of agreeing a deal.
‘It`s still ongoing at the moment,’ Moxey told the Shropshire Star on Wednesday afternoon.
He continued: ‘Hopefully we`ll have something to say in the next 24 to 48 hours, but it`s not as clear-cut as some people would like it to be.
‘There`s interest in him from other clubs and we`re looking at other targets as well.’
Wolves had agreed a fee of around £1million for the former Rosenborg man, but faced competition from German club Eintracht Frankfurt and Wolves gaffer Ståle Solbakken believes the German side will win the battle for his signature.
“Wages are a little bit higher there (at Eintracht Frankfurt) but also the bonuses are higher.’ Solbakken told the Shropshire Star.
He continued: “Perhaps the bonus system there was the difference. I think we were pretty close to that one but he had a lot of offers.
“But as far as coming here, I don`t think the conversation went to plan.”
