Blues linked with move for Wolves’ Bright

Birmingham City have emerged as contenders for Wolves forward Bright Enobakhare. The 21-year-old’s future appears uncertain after he was left behind from Wolves’ trip to China, despite 11 Academy scholars or graduates making the 26-man squad, most of whom are younger and less experienced than him. Wolves have lost two other forwards this summer in Helder Costa to Leeds and Ivan Cavaleiro to Fulham, but Enobakhare still wasn’t called up to travel when Cavaleiro pulled out of the trip at the 11th hour. Prior to that, Enobakhare featured in a first-team behind-closed-doors friendly against Huddersfield at St Georges Park, where…
