Fulham are understood to have rebuffed a Wolverhampton Wanderers approach for centre back Tosin Adarabioyo.

The Premier League side reportedly made an enquiry over the availability of the former Manchester City defender to see whether they could complete a possible signing in the final days of the summer transfer window. Adarabioyo, who was so impressive in his first taste of top flight football despite Fulham’s relegation after moving to Craven Cottage, would have been available for £10m earlier this summer under the terms of the deal that took him to west London but that relegation release clause expired in July.

The ball-playing 23 year-old centre half has made 38 appearances for Fulham and has quickly established himself as one of Marco Silva’s first choices at the heart of the defence as the Whites have made an unbeaten start to their Championship campaign. The Londoners are understood to be keen to hold onto the former England youth international, who is under contract until at least 2023.
