Razak Boukari back at Wolves as move falters
Razak Boukari's move from Wolves to Sochaux was today hanging in the balance.
The Togo winger passed his medical in France last week but failed to agree personal terms on a season-long loan and is back at Compton.
Head coach Kenny Jackett said: "His medical was fine, but he hasn't agreed terms.
"It's still under negotiation – the talks are ongoing. But he's fit now and ready to train."
Asked if he still expected Boukari to move, Jackett said: "It's 50-50. It doesn't seem he's agreed but he's saying the door's still open for the move."
But there is no way back for him at Molineux.
Jackett said: "I would doubt it" when asked if he was back in the head coach's long-term plans.
For the moment, Boukari, who made just four league appearances for Wolves after a £2.5m move from Rennes, will train with the under-18s today before joining the under-21s later in the week.
"He'll need a constructive week," said Jackett. "The first team are doing fitness work today and he needs football. I don't think he will be in the group this week that prepares for Crawley.
"He's a Wolves player and he's building up his fitness after missing pre-season."
Boukari travelled to France with physio Carl Howarth for a week-long medical after being sidelined at Wolves since last September with a rare calf problem that required surgery.
Meanwhile, Barcelona 'B' midfielder Albert Torras, 17, is edging closer to completing his move to Wolves.
Jackett said: "I don't think he's signed yet, but they (development coaches) like him and want to keep him."
Aussie striker Patrick Antelmi, who scored for Wolves Under-21s in Saturday's 3-1 defeat at Newcastle, remains on trial.
