Late on Monday, Foot Mercato in France claimed that Wolverhampton Wanderers were looking to sign Enzo Loiodice from Dijon in Ligue 1.

The young midfielder has struggled to find a space in the first-team, and it seemed the Premier League club were keen to save him from his misery by signing him and playing him in their reserves for the time being.

The French website reported Wolves had made a loan with a view to buy offer for the 19-year-old, but Dijon were more interested in a permanent deal.

Well, that offer has since been made, according to RMC Sport, but what Wolverhampton put forward wasn’t enough.

On their transfer blog, they report Dijon have refused a first transfer offer of €500k + €1.5m of bonuses deemed attainable, with the Premier League side also including a percentage of a next sale in the bid.

It’s claimed the French club have since sent back a counter-offer, with Wolves’ answer expected ‘in the next few hours’.
