Sources: Wolves finalise Mosquera deal after personal terms agreed

Wolves have reached a full agreement with Colombian defender Yerson Mosquera and he is set to become Bruno Lage’s first signing, Football Insider understands. 

The Atletico Nacional centre-back, 20, is heading to Molineux in a move viewed as a major coup.

A club source has told Football Insider that Wolves have had a £4.5million bid accepted and Mosquera has agreed a long-term contract.

The deal is set to be finalised imminently as the young defender has cleared the key hurdle of being granted a work permit.

The plan is for Mosquera to slot straight into the first-team squad and to be phased into the team next season.

Mosquera has made 20 appearances for Atletico Nacional in 2021.
