Sources: Samuels undergoing Aberdeen medical today after Wolves deal agreed

Wolves striker Austin Samuels is undergoing an Aberdeen medical today (24th August) ahead of a season-long loan move, Football Insider can exclusively reveal.

This site revealed on Saturday (21st August) Hibernian, Fleetwood Town and Accrington Stanley were all in the hunt for the 20-year-old forward.

A recruitment source has told Football Insider Aberdeen have now agreed terms of a season-long loan deal.

Samuels has been granted permission to head to Pittodrie to finalise the deal.

The versatile forward has been on the books at Molineux since 2009.

Having broken into the under-23s, Wolves have sent him out on loan to get first-team experience in recent years.

He spent time with Kidderminster Harriers between January and May 2020.

The centre-forward then joined Bradford City in October 2020.

He played 14 times, scored once and contributed an assist for the League Two outfit before returning to Molineux in January.

Samuels is yet to make his first-team debut for Wolves but was on the bench for a League Cup game back in 2019.

He extended his contract with the Midlands outfit by 12 months back in May.

The striker kicked off the new campaign with two goals for Wolves’ under-23 side in a 2-1 win over Middlesbrough.

He is now set to head out on loan again and join an Aberdeen side unbeaten in the Scottish Premiership this term.

The Dons have won two and drawn one of their three league games so far.

They sit behind Hibernian and ahead of Hearts on goal difference alone.
