Confirmed: Wolves agree deal to sign top-flight defender

By Danny Wright

Wolves have confirmed that they have reached an agreement with Turkish top-flight club Konyaspor over the transfer of defender Barry Douglas.

The Black Country outfit announced the news in a post on their official Twitter account on Friday night, which said they have “agreed a deal in principle” with Konyaspor.

However the deal is not completely finished yet, as the tweet added that “talks ongoing to conclude deal” which would make Douglas the clubs’ fourth signing of the summer.

Pictures of the Scottish left-back holding a Wolves shirt, as is the tradition when new signings are made, were leaked on social media on Friday, sparking speculation that Douglas has in fact completed his move to Molineux.

The Express and Star has previously reported that the 27-year-old will move to the Black Country in a fee of around £1million after they fended off interest from Scottish treble winners Celtic.

Douglas began his career in Scotland with Livingston, before spells with Queen’s Park and Dundee United before he signed for Polish outfit Lech Poznan in 2013.

After three years, he switched to Konyaspor, where he made 45 appearances across all competitions, supplying six assists.

Douglas is now set to join new signings Roderick Miranda, Phil Osofu-Ayeh and Ryan Bennett at Molineux ahead of next season.

Football Insider Verdict

Nuno Espirito Santo has wasted no time in putting his own stamp of authority on his squad at Molineux ever since taking charge from Paul Lambert. Douglas looks like a decent full-back, but it could worry Wolves fans that he has been playing abroad for so long that if might see him struggle to adapt back to the ways of British football. Matt Doherty was perhaps one of the better players for Wanderers last season, and it looks as though he might be ousted from first-team duties to bring Douglas in. There has certainly been some left-field buys at Molineux so far, it just remains to be seen as to whether they will be able to help the club push on towards promotion.
