So Dorus De Vries finally left on a free for Wolves. I think everyone saw this coming after the Swans allegedly put a £3M bid on the table for Grzegorz Sandomierski.
In his press statement, De Vries said :
"But sometimes as a professional player you have to get out of your comfort zone a little bit to be able to find your true potential"
If by "true potential" you mean "bigger paycheck", then yes, quite.
Speaking about De Vries, Wolves chief exec Jez Moxey said :
"Dorus was their first choice goalkeeper throughout those promotions and has only missed a handful of league games in the last four years"
I'm guessing he'll be missing quite a few more from here on in. Makes me wonder if De Vries has actually seen Wayne Hennessey play? Of course, that's a moot point since this is obviously a last-contract-of-a-career cash grab and effectively a semi-retirement. Nevermind, eh? If it was me I might like to actually play a few games in the Premier League having worked so hard to get there, but I suppose it takes all kinds.
Anyway, moving on, here's hoping £3M is enough to bring 6 and a half feet of Eastern European excellence to the Liberty.
