Medical underway: Club agree to sign Wolves rising star - Sources

Wolves midfielder Terry Taylor is undergoing a medical at Burton Albion on Wednesday early afternoon, Football Insider understands.

He has agreed a permanent move to the EFL club and signed a two-and-a-half-year contract.

A recruitment source has told Football Insider that barring any late difficulties, the deal should be finalised in the next 24 hours.

This site broke the news last week an EFL club were in talks with the 19-year-old after he was recalled from his loan spell with Grimsby Town.

It was expected he would join another EFL club on loan until the end of the season after falling down the pecking order at Blundell Park.

The Scotland-born ace played 13 times in League Two for Grimsby before falling out of the squad under former manager Ian Holloway.

He did not regain his place under new manager Paul Hirst and returned to Wolves earlier this month and has played once for the club’s Under-23 side since his return.

Taylor now looks set to make the step up to League One with Burton who are rock bottom of the division.

Legendary Netherlands striker Jimmy Floyd-Hasselbaink returned to the club as manager at the beginning of this month.

He recorded his first win back in charge, and Burton’s third in the league this season, against Gillingham on January 9.

They are now seven points adrift of safety behind Northampton Town who have a game in hand over the Brewers.
