Mail take a flyer, Piq still here

Filed: Saturday, 14th January 2012

A story that appeared in the Daily Mail late last night suggesting Freddie Piquionne has moved to Wolves has been dismissed as complete fabrication.

The story - which is still live on the Daily Mail's website - claimed that "Wolves [have] signed striker Frederic Piquionne, 33, on a free transfer from West Ham," adding that "the one-time France international was available of a cut-price fee."

Whilst the latter of those two comments may indeed be correct, with West Ham deserate to offload a player who has scored just twice in 20 appearances for United this season, the story was rubbished this morning by Midlands journalist Tim Nash, Wolves' correspondant for the Express & Star.

"Wolves have NOT signed West Ham's Frederic Piquionne, as reports elsewhere say," he said via Twitter. "He's available but no deal. Agent trying to find him club. Wolves not close to any more signings at the moment. Lot of players being offered them, but the ones they want, clubs don't want to sell."

Piquionne, who was dropped by Sam Allardyce's following the 2-1 defeat at Derby on 31 December is set to miss out again as West Ham take on Portsmouth in this afternoon's Championship clash at Fratton Park.
