Grabban Returns To Bournemouth
Sunderland have tonight confirmed that Bournemouth have recalled Lewis Grabban amid rumours that Wolverhampton Wanderers might be in for him.
A brief statement from the Official Site confirmed the news and stated that as the player had informed them he no longer wished to play for us, we agreed to mutually terminate the loan agreement that was in place.
Manager Chris Coleman explained.
'Throughout my time at the football club I have continually reiterated that I only wish to work with players who want to be here and work hard for Sunderland. Lewis informed us of his desire to leave and we wish him well.'
Sky Sports later reported that they understood this was because Wolves have expressed an intention to buy the player permanently in the coming week.
Wolves aren't alone and are one of a number of clubs said to be expressing interest in him.
He leaves having made 19 starts, one substitute appearance and a return of 12 goals.
