Transfer deadline day: Yerson Mosquera set to leave Wolves on loan

Wolves defender Yerson Mosquera is set to leave Molineux on loan today.

The youngster has yet to get any minutes under his belt with the first-team so far this season.

Mosquera is currently way down in the pecking order, with Nathan Collins, Maximilian Kilman, Toti Gomes and Willy Boly all ahead of him.

Boly will leave Wolves today to join Nottingham Forest after undergoing a medical yesterday. But the club will move to replace the Ivory Coast international.

Wolves are in talks with West Ham United over a deal for Craig Dawson.

And Jason Denayer has also been linked with a free transfer to Molineux.

According to the Express & Star, one of those two coming in will then pave the way for Wolves to send Mosquera out on loan.

Bruno Lage recently admitted that he had not been fair with the £4.5 million star.

He said after the 1-1 draw with Newcastle United: “He started pre-season, but I cannot say that I am being fair with him. Now we are playing with just two centre-backs, sometimes he plays as a right-back, and what we want is to understand what is best for him.”

Mosquera has endured a very frustrating time at Molineux so far since his move from Atletico Nacional.

He suffered a high-grade hamstring injury just 10 minutes into his competitive debut last season.

The South American did not play again for the first-team in 2021/22 after recovering earlier this year.

Wolves youngster Yerson Mosquera needs loan move to get back on track

Hopefully Mosquera will be a temporary outgoing today.

He needs to play, and he just isn’t going to get regular game time at Molineux in 2022/23.

At the time of his arrival, it was noted that Wolves had landed a star of the future by The Athletic, who described him as being ‘extremely aggressive in defence, a strong tackler and better in the air from set pieces than open play’.

Collins and Kilman are already firmly established. And then Toti is an option for Lage, and Dawson or Denayer would both be ahead of him.

Mosquera has big potential, but his growth will be very slow if he stays put.

So Wolves need to get on with securing another experienced central defender so they can then sanction Mosquera’s exit.
