Out-of-favour Wolves man Bright drops hint on next move

Out-of-favour Wolves forward Bright Enobakhare has dropped a potential hint about his next move.
The 21-year-old was reportedly in the crowd at St Andrew’s on Saturday to watch tenants Coventry City beat Southend 1-0 in their opening game of the season in League One. Enobakhare spent the second half of last season at the Sky Blues, who are understood to have lodged a £600,000 bid for him this summer. And the Wolves Academy graduate, who scored six goals in 18 games for Mark Robins’s side last spring, is understood to have bought a ticket to sit among the 6,534 crowd at Birmingham City, where Coventry are groundsharing this season. Enobakhare enjoyed his time at Coventry last season and teased their fans on social media about returning.
Blues are also tracking Enobakhare and can offer the youngster Championship football. Either way, Enobakhare’s future is set to be settled away from Molineux by Thursday’s 5pm transfer deadline, as he hasn’t featured in either of the first-team pre-season friendlies in the Asia Trophy, or the squads for the two Europa League ties so far.
Wolves are also set to find temporary homes for two other out-of-favour players before the transfer window shuts. Leo Bonatini, who signed for the club in a £5m permanent deal a year ago after a season-long loan from Al-Hilal, has reportedly attracted interest from Championship side Reading. But there are doubts whether they can match his wages. The 25-year-old Brazilian striker, who had an unsuccessful spell on loan at Nottingham Forest in the second half of last campaign, has been training with the Under-23s and hasn’t been involved in any senior action this summer. Jordan Graham is also set for another move. The 24-year-old winger spent the second half of last season on loan at League One Oxford, featuring 16 times and scoring once.
