Wolves transfer news: Dan Bentley to sign for Wolves with Matija Sarkic heading to Stoke

Wolves are set to sign Dan Bentley from Bristol City, with Matija Sarkic heading to Stoke City on loan.

Express & Star journalist Liam Keen has dropped some transfer information this evening about the club’s goalkeeper situation.

Yesterday, the Bristol Post reported that Wolves were looking at Englishman Bentley as a possible replacement for Sarkic.

The situation appears to have move quite quickly. The 29-year-old will have his medical tomorrow, according to Keen in the Express & Star.

Montenegro international Sarkic is reportedly now bound for Championship outfit Stoke.

The hope is that he will be able to get regular minutes with the Potters, having made just three cup appearances for Wolves this season.

Sarkic only featured once under Julen Lopetegui – against Liverpool in the first FA Cup game against Liverpool.

Seemingly, the Spaniard feels Sarkic needs to go out and develop his game further.

Last season, Sarkic, 25, went on loan to Birmingham City and really impress in the first half of the 2021/22 season.

But he picked up a season-ending injury in the Blues’ first game of 2022, which was a huge shame after he had become a firm fans’ favourite.

But he’s now heading back to the English second tier, and will hopefully again be able to impress.

A positive move from Wolves to replace Matija Sarkic with Dan Bentley

So Wolves are moving Sarkic out to make way for Bentley, who is an experienced goalkeeper.

He’s got over 400 games under his belt at club level.

As the club captain of Bristol City, it’s clear he has leadership qualities, and the Wolves dressing room needs these types of individuals after losing so many older players last summer.

Sarkic heading to Stoke is a good move to.

Manager Alex Neill has been looking to bolster his goalkeeping ranks after letting Joe Bursik leave for Club Brugge.
