Wolverhampton Wanderers are closing in on a deal for Coventry City midfielder Ben Stevenson, according to a reliable journalist.
Pete O’Rourke, who is a reliable source of transfer information, announced the news on his official Twitter page that the Championship leaders were on the verge of landing their League Two target, and that he will go straight into the Wolves U23 setup to begin with.

Stevenson has set League Two alight with the 12 appearances he has made this season, and with his talent and technical ability, he will be an asset to any side he is a part of.
The young midfielder scored his first goal for the Sky Blues in October 2016 – a 30-yard thunderbolt into the top corner against Oxford United.
Football Insider verdict:
This would seem a strange move from the outset. Why take a player who is gaining moments of first team action and put him into a youth side? It would possibly have made more sense to loan him back out to Coventry but perhaps Wolves felt he wasn’t getting enough game-time. Stevenson is a talented midfielder and technically gifted – his calm presence in possession is unusual for someone of his age. Wolves are a club which is going places and if the player wants to fulfill ambitions of becoming a Premier League star, then he will be going to the right place to realise those dreams.
