Report: Nathan Collins' potential to enhance dressing room key in Wolves transfer swoop

Wolves completed their first signing of the summer earlier this week, with Nathan Collins joining from Burnley.

Wanderers splashed £20 million to sign the centre-half from the relegated Clarets.

The 21-year-old signed in time to fly out for the start of Wolves’ pre-season training camp in Alicante.

Fans were delighted by the acquisition, with many having been clamouring for a new centre-back.

The hope now is that Collins will establish himself as a top centre-half in the Premier League.

The youngster made a really good impression last season for Burnley, despite their eventual relegation.

It is felt that Collins has all the attributes to become a high quality central defender, and increase his market value significantly.

The Athletic have today ran a piece about Collins and how Wolves eventually came to sign him.

The club scouted him for three years before finally swooping, and the transfer fee is apparently being paid over the next four years.

Towards the end of the article, it is mentioned how Wolves decided to act after receiving positive word from ex-coaches and teammates about his character.

Apparently, their testimonies painted a picture of Collins that he would ‘enhance the Molineux dressing room’.

Obviously, Wolves have lost three individuals in Romain Saiss, John Ruddy and Fernando Marcal this summer who were major parts of the dressing room.

Nathan Collins’ character is sure to improve Wolves dressing room

By many accounts, Collins is a really mature, level-headed individual.

It seems likely he will be a really good fit in the Wolves’ dressing room, which has taken a bit of a hit this summer.

It is important to not only sign good players, but good characters.

In Collins, it looks as though the club have done really good business, and it’s a deal that has potential to really pay dividends in a few years’ time.
