Wolverhampton Wanderers have made their first signing of the summer.

Defender Yerson Mosquera has completed a move to Molineux, signing from Atletico Nacional.

The fee is reported to be worth around £4.5 million (Express & Star).

Mosquera is seen as a real coup by the Wolves recruitment team, who were able to win the race for the player ahead of the likes of Manchester united and Manchester City.

The 20-year-old talent will be a part of the first-team.

The hope is that he will eventually break into the starting XI.

Interestingly, The Athletic report today that Wolves actually poached Mosquera from Club Brugge.

He was due to fly to Belgium to sign, before Wolves’ call came.


Apparently, Mosquera then actually phoned Brugge personally to apologise to them.

A measure of the man

Mosquera ringing Brugge to apologise says a lot about his character.

Very few players would go to the trouble of doing that, especially youngsters.

Or at least, most would instruct their agent to make that communication.

It perhaps shows that Mosquera is mature beyond his years.

And also that there is no ego there whatsoever.
