An EFL club have been granted permission to hold talks with Wolves rising star Terry Taylor over a permanent move, Football Insider can exclusively reveal.

This site broke the news earlier this month the midfielder was set to be recalled from a season-long loan spell at Grimsby Town and that was confirmed shortly after.

It had been expected at that stage that Taylor would head out on a new loan for the second half of the campaign, possibly to a League One club.

In a new twist, a Wolves source has told Football Insider the club have accepted an approach for the 19-year-old from an unnamed EFL side.

It is believed the Wales Under-21 international could now head permanently out of Molineux before the January window shuts in a week’s time.

He is a defensive midfielder also capable of dropping back and slotting in at centre-back.

The teenager impressed EFL clubs with his performances in League Two for loan club Grimsby in the opening half of the campaign.

He made 11 league starts as he made an impressive fist of his first extended spell of first-team football.

Taylor has a contract with Wolves that runs until the summer of 2022.

He arrived at the Midlands giants from Aberdeen in the summer of 2019 and was handed his first-team debut in October of the same year in Wolves’ 2-1 defeat to Aston Villa in the Carabao Cup.

His performances for James Collins’ Under-23 side saw him put pen-to-paper on a fresh deal last summer.

Scotland-born Taylor has played four times for Wales Under-21s and has trained with the senior side on occasion.
