Lage had talks with the Ivory Coast international on Saturday and informed him needed him in the match-day squad.

But the 31-year-old centre-back failed to show.

Lage said: “He has a proposal in his hands and he wants to go, that is my feeling when I talk to him.

“I told him I need a top player like you on the bench and afterwards he makes his decision. He was in the squad list and he didn’t come.

“He wants to force something I think.”

Lage said the transfer window stretching into the start of the season causes the problems.

He said: “The market will be open and the teams will play six or seven games.

“Everything happens with agents and players and it is so hard to manage and not just Boly. I can see everywhere a lot of talks.


“Boly doesn’t deserve that, he has been a great professional but in the end he wants to force something. But in the end they have to be professionals.

I take my decision to put him in the squad list and he takes his decision.”

Centre-back Boly has been an unused sub in Wolves opening three Premier League games of the season.

Boly is a fans’ favourite at Molineux.

Nicknamed ‘The Wall’ he has played almost 150 games for the club since joining them from Porto in July 2017.
