Camara walks out on Wolves

Wolves have revealed want-away striker Henri Camara has refused to join pre-season training and left the country.

The club held talks over Camara's future on Monday but afterwards the 27-year-old left for France, against the club's wishes.

"Henri refused to go to the training ground with his teammates," said Wolves chief executive Jez Moxey.

"He's now gone to Paris, which we're unhappy about, and the matter remains unresolved at the moment."

The Professional Footballers' Association revealed Wolves could sack Camara - although it is unlikely matters will get that far.

PFA spokesman John Bramhall: "In those circumstances it's only possible to speak in general terms.

"But one would hope a situation like that could be resolved internally through a club's own disciplinary procedures which would presumably involve the threat of fines or suspensions.

"The ultimate sanction would be for a club to give a player 14 days' notice of dismissal, citing breach of contract."

Moxey added: "There is a board meeting on Tuesday and this matter will be discussed in full."

The Molineux club's pre-season training programme began last week but Camara was granted time off after having played in Senegal's World Cup qualifiers.

Camara handed in a written transfer request following Wolves' relegation from the Premiership at the end of last season.

Bolton have expressed an interest, but their 2.5m valuation of Camara falls well short of what Wolves would want.
