Wolves manager Kenny Jackett insists the Championship club have received no fresh interest in striker Benik Afobe, who was the subject of bids from Norwich City in August.

Jackett has praised the former Arsenal youngster's attitude to being dropped, as he considers recalling him against Leeds tonight.

Afobe, scorer of 32 goals for MK Dons and his current club last term, has found himself among the substitutes for the past two games after finding the net just once in his previous seven games. The 22-year-old has scored eight in all competitions this season.

'There have been no offers or approaches from any clubs,' Jackett told Wolves' official website. 'Until that happens, nothing happens. Should it build up like last time we'll have to see. As it stands there's nobody making any enquiries, it's all quiet on that front.

'No, we haven't had any difference or conversations on Benik, other than making sure he scores goals and plays well. And he hasn't thrown his toys out of the pram at all. He's been working hard, again trained hard and well, and scored goals in training which is good. We want him to really push now and get back.'
