Wolves transfer news: Willy Boly agrees two-year deal with Nottingham Forest

Wolves defender Willy Boly has reportedly agreed a two-year deal with Nottingham Forest.

According to Foot Mercato, the central defender is now just one step away from sealing his exit from Molineux.

Wolves and Forest have been in advanced negotiations, with the player interested in becoming part of the Reds’ project.

Boly has just one year left on his contract at Molineux, and the 31-year-old seemingly doesn’t want to spend his final season playing second fiddle to Nathan Collins and Maximilian Kilman.

Boly has not played any minutes so far in 2022/23.

He was unavailable to face Preston North End having felt pain on the morning of the game according to Bruno Lage.

The manager then named Boly in his squad for the Newcastle United game, but the player did not show up at Molineux.

Afterwards, Lage confirmed that Boly wanted to leave the club.

It would seem a move is now imminent for Boly, and Wolves are being linked with replacements.

Craig Dawson of West Ham United is apparently an option. And Jason Denayer has also been linked this morning.

Should Boly complete a move to the City Ground before anyone else goes there, he would become their 20th signing of the summer.

Wolves and Forest, of course, have already done business once this summer, with Morgan Gibbs-White transferring for a fee that may one day reach as high as £42.5 million.

Wolves must ensure they replace Boly as defender agrees two-year deal with Forest

It looks as though Boly to Forest is pretty much a done deal.

And Wolves must now work to replace the Ivorian with someone who can come in to replace Collins or Kilman, or even play alongside them in a three.

Dawson could be a good bet.

He’s vastly experienced at Premier League level and has been really good for West Ham over the past couple of years.
