Kenny Jackett expects Tongo Doumbia departure

Wolverhampton Wanderers head coach Kenny Jackett admits that midfielder Tongo Doumbia is likely to leave the club before the start of the season.

Wolverhampton Wanderers head coach Kenny Jackett believes that midfielder Tongo Doumbia will return to France during the summer transfer window.

Doumbia spent the year on loan at Valenciennes during the previous campaign, but despite the 24-year-old returning to pre-season training with Wolves next week, Jackett is anticipating a short stay for the Mali international.

The 52-year-old is quoted by the Express and Star as saying: "I haven't spoken to Tongo yet because he's not back until next week but I think that he'll be looking for loans in France."

Doumbia signed for Wolves in 2012, but after making 33 appearances during his first year at Molineux, he was given the opportunity to leave on loan following the club's relegation to League One.
