Wolves have ended talks with Lille over signing midfielder Renato Sanches after the two clubs failed to come to an agreement on a loan deal.
Wolves were hoping to finalize a decision before Tuesday’s deadline, but they have halted talks with Ligue 1 and will only resume negotiations if Lille are ready to make concessions.
Sanches is currently recovering from a knee injury and is facing another month.
The 24-year-old has rejuvenated his career at Lille after leaving Bayern Munich for France in 2019.
He managed five goals and five assists in 60 appearances for Lille and helped them win Ligue 1 last season.
Sanches had a breakout tournament with Portugal at Euro 2016, which led to the German champions signing him from Benfica.
After struggling in his debut Bundesliga season, Sanches had a tough Premier League loan season with Swansea under Paul Clement, having failed to score in 15 appearances.
Gibbs-White ready for loan from Sheffield United
Wolves winger Morgan Gibbs-White is set to join Sheffield United on a one-season loan after the two clubs reached a deal that does not include a buy option.
The 21-year-old has made three appearances for Wolves this season and scored one goal in their 4-0 League Cup win at Nottingham Forest.
Gibbs-White had spent the first half of last season on loan at Swansea before being called up by Wolves in January 2021.
