He would be an would be U22 Initiative signing for them.

Jeong has been on loan with Grasshoppers this season, making 12 appearances and scoring two goals.

Wolves only signed the youngster last January from K-League outfit Suwon Samsung Bluewings, in what was a low-key window for the club.

He reportedly cost the club £1 million.

At the time, then technical director Scott Sellars said of him (Wolves official): “Sang-bin is a young, raw talent, who has done very well for his club and national team whilst still only a teenager.

“We hope to provide him an opportunity to develop and grow as a player, and a person, in Zurich with Grasshoppers, before returning in the future.”

Jeong only had his breakthrough at the start of the 2021/22 season, before making his move to Wolves.

The 20-year-old, who scored after just five minutes on his international debut for Korea against Sri Lanka, headed straight out on loan to Swiss outfit Grasshoppers.

The move was for 18 months, and it appears Jeong will not be heading back to Molineux at the end of his loan move.

There have been claims on social media that Jeong could be in Minnesota tomorrow to finalise a deal.
