Wolves had reportedly scouted Nathan Patterson, but the full-back has now completed a transfer to Everton.

According to 90min, Patterson had been watched by several clubs recently, who is one of Scotland’s most exciting prospects.

He was not a regular at Rangers, with James Tavernier the main right-back and also club captain.

That meant playing opportunities were limited for the 20-year-old at Ibrox.

It is reported by 90min that Aston Villa, Manchester United and Wolves had all been casting their eyes over Patterson.

It’s stated that most wanted to wait until the summer before making a move.

But Everton got in there to seal the deal.

It is reported by Sky Sports that the Toffees have forked out around £16 million for the Scotland international.

Everton failed with two bids in the summer but have now been successful, and Patterson becomes their second signing of the window after Vitaliy Mykolenko.

Wolves are nicely set at right-back/right wing-back, as Nathan Patterson joins Everton

Patterson joining Everton is not too much of a blow for Wolves, if there was indeed any interest.

Right-back/right wing-back is currently looking quite a strong position for Bruno Lage.

Nelson Semedo is enjoying a fantastic season at Molineux and finally looks worth what the club paid for him in the summer of 2020.

And Ki-Jana Hoever has looked decent when called upon.

There is also Jonny Castro Otto to come back into the picture.

He’s primarily played as a left wing-back for Wolves. But he’s an option for the opposite flank given he is right-footed.

Patterson could well be a real success at Everton, but it’s not a transfer Wolves fans ought to be too cut up about.
