Martins fee agreed - Auf Wiedersehen Oba

Martins fee agreed - Auf Wiedersehen Oba

It looks as if we're finally set to reclaim our first monies of the summer with the sale of Oba Martins to Wolfsburg. Following tattle of a move over the last few days, coupled with positive noises from the player and Germany, it seems the Wolves have made their move and the Nigerian has been sprung to the Bundesliga.

A pretty hefty £9m fee has been agreed which hopefully starts the ball rolling for a bit of fee income and wage bill reduction, with Martins on around £65k a week.
