Reports have indicated that newly-promoted side Nottingham Forest are interested in Boly's services, but Wolves have rejected offers.

BBC Sports reports that head coach Bruno Lage revealed that he held talks with Boly on Saturday and informed him he was in the match-day squad.

He has a proposal in his hands and he wants to go, that is my feeling when I talked to him.
I told him I need a top player like you on the bench and afterwards, he makes his decision. He was on the squad list and he didn’t come.

Boly joined Wolves in 2017 from Porto and played an integral part in their promotion to the top-flight and the subsequent run in the Europa League.

The Ivory Coast international is yet to play this season with the partnership of Nathan Collins and Max Kilman preferred.

Antonio Conte slams Richarlison for showboating against Nottingham Forest

Sports Brief has also reported that Tottenham Hotspur manager Antonio Conte has warned his new signing Richarlison that showboating and goading the opponent will not be tolerated.

Richarlison was introduced from the bench for the third consecutive time. The Brazilian provided an assist late on to Harry Kane to put the game beyond Nottingham Forest's reach.

Spurs had to grind out the result, with Forest dominating for long periods. The newly-promoted side gave a good account of themselves but could not breach Hugo Lloris's goal.
