Wolves legend Steve Bull believes the club wont go back in for Arsenal midfielder Ainsley Maitland-Niles this summer.

The Old Gold outfit were reportedly on the verge of signing Maitland-Niles for 20 million last summer, before the player opted to stay in north London to fight for his place in Mikel Artetas side.

Having struggled to hold down a regular place at the Emirates Stadium, the versatile 23-year-old joined West Brom on loan in February in order to find more first-team football.

Since making the switch to the Midlands club, Maitland-Niles has played every minute in the Premier League including a leading role in the astonishing 5-2 victory over Chelsea last weekend.

Following reports claiming Wolves will reignite their interest this summer, Bull, a Hall of Famer at Molineux, told Transfer Tavern that he doesnt expect Nuno Espirito Santo to prioritise the England man:

Last summer I think Wolves fancied him and thought he could do a job, but they went for Marcal over Maitland-Niles in the end and I think hell slot straight back in when hes fit.

So, Maitland-Niles is not for me, I think hell go back to Arsenal and try to get in their side.

Experienced full-back Marcal arrived for 1.8m (Transfermarkt) to act as cover for both Jonny and youngster Ki-Jana Hoever.

Ultimately the 32-year-old has been unable to feature as he wouldve wished owing to persistent injury setbacks and Santo could look to head into the market once again this summer to bolster the position.
