Transfer deadline day: Wolves finally agree deal for Boubacar Traore

Wolves have reportedly finally agreed a deal to sign Boubacar Traore from FC Metz.

Wanderers have already sold Leander Dendoncker to Aston Villa today.

Fans had started to worry that the club were not going to replace the Belgian midfielder.

But Telegraph journalist John Percy is reporting tonight that Wolves have now agreed a deal with Metz to sign Traore on a season-long loan.

And Wanderers have apparently negotiated an option to buy worth around £9.5 million.

Wolves officials apparently flew out this afternoon to go and wrap up a deal.

And it appears they have been successful.

The player will now undergo a medical, and hopefully there will be no issues before the 11pm deadline.

Earlier today, journalist Liam Keen reported that Connor Ronan is set to stay at Molineux for the 2022/23 season, and that any deal for Traore would not see him leave.

Boubacar Traore deal is really good negotiating from Wolves

So it looks as though Wolves will indeed seal a move for Traore. Hopefully there are no hiccups in these final couple of hours.

The deal Wolves have negotiated here seems like really good business.

Traore is a young player with really big potential, but the Premier League is obviously a very tough division.

There is no telling how he will adapt to English football and so it is smart to get the player on a loan basis first.

Having the option to buy him is really good. The club isn’t tied into signing him if it doesn’t work out.
