Wolves are now reported to be paying just shy of £14 million for midfielder Jean-Ricner Bellegarde.

In the last hour or so, it was reported that Wolves had reached an agreement with Strasbourg for the player’s transfer.

The player had already agreed personal terms with Wolves.

It is now expected that Wanderers will land Bellegarde before tonight’s 11pm deadline, after fellow midfielder Tommy Doyle already signed on loan today.

And now, there is word of a fee…

Wolves set to pay just under £14 million for Jean-Ricner Bellegarde

Journalist Santi Aouna, who broke the news of the agreement between Wolves and Strasbourg, has now given some more information via Twitter.

He says that the deal is close to €16 million, which is just shy of £14 million.

Interestingly, he adds that the player could actually undertake his medical tests in France, and fly to England at the earliest convenience.

This is a situation that mirrors last summer when Wolves signed Boubacar Traore from FC Metz.

That was a deadline day deal that went right to the wire.

Wolves sent officials over to France to complete the tests, and allowed Traore to fly to England a few days later.
