Griffiths set for Wolves switch

BY foxsports • January 12, 2011

The club's administrator, Bryan Jackson, will now decide whether to accept the offer for the Scotland Under-21 international. Dundee chief executive Harry MacLean would not confirm where the bid had come from, but it is believed to be Wolves. "If there is a sensible bid, and the type of money we are talking about is reasonably sensible, then the administrator will decide," MacLean told BBC Scotland. "The chances are Leigh will have to leave the club in the near future." The First Division club had hoped immediately to re-sign Griffiths, 20, on loan but the Scottish Football League refused to lift their transfer embargo despite the unusual circumstances. "They talked about the integrity of the league and it giving us an unfair advantage," MacLean said. "The purpose was not to gain an advantage, it was purely to give the administrator some money to allow us to exit administration and retain our squad of 11 or 12 players to give a game on a Saturday to every team in the league. "Unfortunately that is not going to be the case. Keeping one of Scotland's finest young talents in the First Division would have been good for the league and the player moving to the English Premiership would have been good exposure for the league."
