The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP - By Tom Black­ett

WOLVES have been cleared of any wrong-do­ing by the EFL over their re­la­tion­ship with su­per-agent Jorge Men­des.

Leeds owner An­drea Radriz­zani and other Cham­pi­onship clubs had raised con­cerns over Men­des’ in­volve­ment at the Mid­lands club.

A sub­sidiary of Wolves own­ers Fo­sun has a share in Men­des’ agency and sev­eral of his clients are at Mo­lineux.

In a state­ment, the EFL said: “It has been de­ter­mined that Mr Men­des holds no role at the club and, as such, should not be cat­e­gorised as a ‘Rel­e­vant Per­son’ as de­fined by League reg­u­la­tions.

“On this ba­sis there is no re­quire­ment for him to sub­mit to the Own­ers’ and Di­rec­tors’ Test.

“The club has been re­minded of its con­tin­u­ing obli­ga­tion to keep un­der re­view the sta­tus of both ex­ist­ing Rel­e­vant Per­sons, but also any other in­di­vid­u­als who may at some point ac­quire the sta­tus of Rel­e­vant Per­son.”

In re­sponse, Wolves said in a state­ment: “We be­lieve the re­lease of th­ese find­ings will bring to a con­clu­sion any spec­u­la­tion sur­round­ing the club’s op­er­a­tion and ex­tin­guish any con­cerns held by other clubs.”

AGENT: Jorge Men­des
