Wolves ownership: EFL to hold talks with Wolves over ownership concerns

Last Updated March 08 2018, 17:18Football

The EFL have confirmed that they will meet with the management of Wolves to discuss concerns over the ownership of the Championship leaders.

Leeds United owner Andrea Radrizzani questioned the club's link-up with super-agent Jorge Mendes after Wolves beat his side 3-0 at Elland Road on Wednesday.

The result put Wolves six points clear at the top of the Sky Bet Championship and gave them a ten-point cushion in the automatic promotion places. They're huge 1/16 favourites now to win the division.

A subsidiary of Wolves owners Fosun owns a share in Mendes' agency, Gestifute, and several of the agent's clients are at Molineux, playing a huge part in their current position.

The EFL have no confirmed they will look into the matter and will discuss to “reiterate the requirements of our regulations” regarding ownership.

“At its meeting today the EFL Board considered at length the matter of the relationship between Wolverhampton Wanderers, majority shareholder of the club, Fosun and Jorge Mendes, in light of the recent concerns raised by a number of clubs,” an EFL statement read.

“It was agreed that the EFL Executive will meet with the management of the club to reiterate the requirements of our regulations and those of the FA and will report back to the board in due course.

“It should be noted that the club was explicitly informed in July 2016 of all the requirements it was expected to meet as part of the change of control, and appropriate arrangements were put in place to ensure compliance.

“The club has confirmed that the undertakings given at the time remain in place and are being complied with.”
