He has not started a Premier League game since March 30, while City appear eager to recruit another player in his position this summer, with highly-rated teenager Matthijs de Ligt reportedly on Pep Guardiola’s shopping list.

However, Otamendi’s huge wages make a return to South America unlikely.

A move to Wolves is given greater probability by the fact that Otamendi’s agent Jorge Mendes represents Wolves’ coach Nuno Espirito Santo and players Ruben Neves and Joao Moutinho.

Dr Wendy Chapman confessed to a disciplinary hearing of the General Medical Council that she cut the Harlequins winger’s mouth, to cover up the use of a fake-blood capsule during the Heineken Cup quarter-final clash with Leinster in April 2009.

Chapman’s admission now leaves her at risk of being struck off by the medical profession. She has already been suspended from her main job working in A&E at Maidstone hospital in Kent. Williams was caught on camera putting the blood capsule in his mouth late on in the match, allowing his Harlequins team, who were trailing 6-5, to send on a specialist kicker. He was provided with the capsule by Harlequins physio Steph Brennan, at the behest of director of rugby Dean Richards.

Williams was initially banned from rugby for 12 months, later reduced to four, while Richards was suspended for three years and the club was hit with a ?259,000 fine.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_symbols_of_England Brennan was also handed a two-year ban for his part in the incident and is set to face a Health Professions Council hearing on September 13. “
