Wolves ‘in advanced talks’ to land first summer signing ahead of Leeds, Newcastle & Leicester

The wait for a signing is nearly over.

Wolverhampton Wanderers are closing in on their first major signing of the summer with the club currently in ‘advanced talks’ with Burnley over a transfer for centre-back Nathan Collins.

The Telegraph report that a fee of around £20.5million is on the table for the Irishman and whilst a deal is not yet complete, negotiations are well on their way and ‘it’s close.’

The Republic Of Ireland international was reportedly attracting interest from a number of Premier League clubs including Leeds United, Newcastle United & Leicester City - making the capture for Wolves even more impressive.

With only Hwang Hee-chan on the incomings list to date, Collins’ signature will help calm everyone down just that little bit in the black country.

Pack stand firm on Gibbs-White

More positive news surrounding a current player comes in the shape of Morgan Gibbs-White.

Wolves yesterday turned down a bid believed to be in the region of £25million from Everton for the England under-21 international and are adamant that he is not for sale.

Bruno Lage sees the midfielder, who spent last season on loan with Sheffield United, as a big part of the future at Molineux and unless an estimation well over his valuation comes in - he will be staying put.

The 22-year-old scored in a 3-0 win friendly win over Burnley on Saturday.
