Wolves have agreed to sign defender Phil Ofosu-Ayeh, it was announced on Tuesday morning.
The Midlands club confirmed on their official website that he will be joining them on a three-year deal this summer.
The 25-year-old will complete his move officially on the 1 July when he becomes a free agent, with his existing deal at German second-tier club Eintracht Braunschweig expiring at the end of this month.

Ofosu-Ayeh is a German born defender that has one international cap for African country Ghana.
The right-back was unfortunate with injuries last season for Eintracht, but still managed 18 appearances across all competitions.
He is yet to experience club football outside of the German leagues and has now taken the plunge to compete with Wolves in the English Championship.
Ofosu-Ayeh has 68 appearances in the Bundesliga 2 league and will be joining England’s second division too.
Football Insider verdict:
Ofosu-Ayeh will move to the Molineux Stadium in search of regular first-team football and will have to hit the ground running to achieve that. Versatile ace Conor Coady cemented his position as Wolves’ first-choice right-back in the second half of last season and will be looking to continue that role going forward. Ofosu-Ayeh is recognised as a powerful defender and should be able to cope with the physicality of the English game. The full-back has also earned a call-up to the Ghana squad in the past, which suggests that he has some quality about him. Wolves manager Nuno Espirito Santo has been tasked with trying to improve the club’s fortunes next year and finisher higher than 15th. It is unclear whether Ofosu-Ayeh will turn out to be a success in England, but going for players with Championship know-how may have been a better approach to try push them towards promotion.
In other Wolves transfer news, they will not be able to sign their playmaker target this summer.
