WOLVES have rejected a £1million bid from Nottingham Forest for out-of-favour defender Willy Boly, according to reports.
Promoted Forest have gone on a summer-signing rampage in the transfer window.
Steve Cooper's squad now features 16 new signings.
However, his attempt to add experienced centre-back Boly as defensive cover has failed so far.
According to The Athletic, Forest submitted the cut-price offer for the Ivory Coast international.
But despite Wolves' openness to selling, they turned down the bid.

The Molineux club would also want a replacement lined up before sanctioning the transfer.
Boly, 31, joined Wolves from Porto, initially on loan in 2017 before securing a permanent switch the following year.
He has racked up 147 appearances for the club with nine of his ten Premier League games in an injury-hit 2021-22 season coming in the run-in.
However, the former Braga and Auxerre man is yet to feature under Bruno Lage this season – despite Conor Coady's loan departure.
