Wolves boss Kenny Jackett has revealed that the Championship club have ended their interest in signing former Newcastle United striker Shola Ameobi.
The 33-year-old Nigeria international, who left St James' Park in May 2014, had been training with Wolves.
He then played the first 68 minutes of Monday's 3-2 defeat for the club's Under-21 side at Swansea.
But Jackett confirmed they would not be pursuing Ameobi after Tuesday's League Cup defeat at Middlesbrough.

The 3-0 loss left Wolves winless in three games ahead of Saturday's Championship trip to promoted Preston.
Jackett, who has lost midfielder Dave Edwards for "several weeks" with a knee injury, was also without goalkeeper Emi Martinez and defenders Kortney Hause and Scott Golbournein, who was on the bench, in a much-changed line-up at the Riverside.
But skipper Danny Batth is close to a return at centre-half after four months out with a broken foot, which kept him out of last season's final two games.
After playing for an hour against West Bromwich Albion's Under-21s nine days before, Batth played the whole 90 minutes against Swansea.
