Wolves fans hoping for a positive update on Joao Palhinha will be disappointed this evening.

But Fabrizio Romano has tonight reported that the 26-year-old is closing in on a move to the newly promoted Premier League side.

He says that it is now just a case of the final details being sorted out on the player’s side.

An agreement between Fulham and Sporting was reached days ago.

It is thought that Palhinha would move for around €18 million plus add-ons (£15.5 million).

Some have been hoping Fulham surge into the lead in the race for Palhinha would have prompted Wolves into action.

But it doesn’t seem Wanderers are going to rival the Cottagers.

From Romano’s update, it seems as though he is set to complete the transfer, with the goal of the clubs to complete a deal as soon as possible.

Joao Palhinha update suggests there will be no Wolves hijack mission

At this point, it will be a surprise if Palhinha doesn’t now complete his move to Craven Cottage.

And it’s going to seriously sting once those confirmation pictures from Fulham drop.

It is really difficult to understand how Wolves have allowed Fulham to come in and prise him away from Sporting.

The price tag seems very reasonable, which is what is making it very difficult for many Wolves fans.
