Dexter Lembikisa is reportedly locked in talks with Wolves over a loan exit for 2023/24.
The young full-back made his first-team debut for Wolves last season, impressing against Liverpool in the FA Cup and then Arsenal in the Premier League.
Lembikisa has enjoyed a brilliant rise at Wolves.
He regularly stands out with the U21s.
But it would appear that Wolves feel the time is now right for him to head out on loan.
Dexter Lembikisa set for loan move in 2023/24 with a number of clubs keen
According to TEAMtalk, up to six clubs from the Championship are showing interest in taking Lembikisa on loan for the coming season and have made approaches.
A number of foreign sides are also keen.
Lembikisa has been in talks with Wolves and it has apparently been decided that he should now leave temporarily, in a bid to build up his experience.

It would be his first loan move.
Wolves have seen a number of players really benefit from playing in the English second tier in recent times.
Morgan Gibbs-White thrived at Sheffield United. Matija Sarkic did well at Birmingham and Dion Sanderson caught the eye at Birmingham, whom he’s now joined permanently, and QPR.
Lembikisa has previously said that he would be open to leaving Molineux on loan.
Loan move for Lembikisa is the right call, hopefully it’s to a Championship club
While there are other great leagues out there, the Championship has served Wolves well in terms of the development of young players.
It would be the right call to get Lembikisa to a Championship club for the new season.
It is a brilliant league, and a physical one too that will suit Lembikisa.
Given reports are strong that Matt Doherty is returning to Molineux, then it does make sense for him to head out on loan.
Lembikisa has thrived with the U21s but he’s probably not quite ready to be Nelson Semedo’s understudy so.
He’s on Lopetegui’s radar, with Matt Hobbs saying earlier this year that he ‘really likes’ the full-back.
Hopefully a move to the English second tier will come to fruition.
