Wolves are in to the final stages of completing a deal for Noha Lemina, according to transfer guru Fabrizio Romano.

The Italian posted on his X (formerly known as Twitter) account that Wolves and PSG have 'completed contracts' for Lemina and that it is a loan move with a buy option clause. He will undergo a medical today and he is so confident that he has described it as a 'done deal' as expected.

Lemina is currently on loan with Serie B outfit Sampdoria but he has found opportunities limited. He has played just once in the league this season and has instead played in the Primavera, which is a youth league in Italy. Lemina is an attacking midfielder that can also play on the left and right and is right-footed. He was under contract at PSG until the summer of 2025 and is the younger brother of Wolves star Mario Lemina.

The Athletic's transfer specialist journalist David Ornstein says that the option to purchase Lemina is €2m and that should Wolves take up the option to sign him permanently he will join on a five-year deal. Wolves still need to finalise terms with the player and his agent before a move is concluded, and it will be up to Lemina if he wants to pursue a permanent transfer.

Wolves are getting a player that has a fair amount of potential, and his arrival to the Midlands could help keep Mario Lemina at the club for a longer period. Lemina is a seven-time France under-17 international and is currently valued at €500k on the respected website TransferMarkt.

Should the move be finalised in the coming days then he would represent their second incoming this month. It's been a somewhat quiet month in regards to signings as Wolves try to avoid any Financial Fair Play punishments by being wise in their decision making. Striker Fletcher Holman who signed from non-league side Eastbourne Borough is the only arrival so far and he is regarded as an addition for the under-21s team.
