Championship side Wolverhampton Wanderers are understood to have rejected a move from Leeds United for their Nigerian goalkeeper Carl Ikeme, according to reports in the UK.
The Wolves shot-stopper is a serial loanee, having been sent out to eight different clubs in the football league since 2003.
It’s understood Leeds made the loan approach in October, shortly after Steve Evans’ appointment as manager.
But according to the Yorkshire Post, they were knocked back despite Ikeme not being a starter for Wolves at the time.
The 29-year-old has since been reinstated to the No1 spot by Kenny Jackett following an injury to on-loan Arsenal man Emiliano Martinez.
And Evans’ need for a goalkeeper has also lessened following the improved performances of Marco Silvestri.
The 24-year-old kept a clean sheet in his last Championship outing against Charlton, but Leeds are still lagging down in 18th place
