Wolves boss monitoring Frimpong situation

Wolves manager Stale Solbakken has admitted that he could re-sign Emmanuel Frimpong on loan for a second time if midfielder Tongo Doumbia goes to the Africa Cup of Nations in January.

The 20-year-old spent a short spell on loan at Wolves last season, making five league appearances, but his stint was cut short when he suffered a season-ending knee injury, and the youngster returned to Arsenal.

Frimpong is highly rated by Gunners boss Arsene Wenger and his loan move to Charlton was seen as an opportunity for the player to experience first-team football following several injury setbacks.

Solbakken, however, insisted the club was right not to take Frimpong in the last loan window as the 20-year-old has completed 90 minutes just once in four games.

“If he [Doumbia] does go it depends on what we can do otherwise. Frimpong is one of the players we can keep an eye on”, said Solbakken.

“We’ve been right so far on that one. We have monitored his situation with Charlton and seen the games.

“He’s better now than when he first went there, when he struggled a bit.”
