First signing for Wolves on the way
Dundee FC striker Leigh Griffiths will sign for Wolves if he will be declared fit by the medical he will go through today and tomorrow.
That is the talk of the town now up in Dundee and even the BBC has listened to it. Who is then Leigh Griffiths?
Striker, 20-year-old, born in Leith. Came to Dundee FC in 2009 from Livingston, where he made his debut as a 16-year-old. Has played for Scotland B and the Youth teams.
He has scored 21 goals for Dundee since he came – in one and a half season and 46 games that is.Ten goals this season. He is reported to have signed for £150.000 and costed Dundee £125.000 when they bought him.
Wolves seem to have agreed to loan him back to Dundee for the season at first, but the SFL didn’t agree to that. Dundee FC is in financial difficulties with the taxman at their door, so they have to sell to get out of administration.
He was actually in an area down the road to Wolverhampton on trial for a club who claim to play association football in April 2009. But when their manager Mowbray got the sack they didn’t sign him. Maybe a new Bully? 😆
My guess is that he will be a player in the Development team this season and maybe he could take the step up in the future. Anyway, he could be a prospect and he doesn’t cost that much, so it is no big economical liability.
