Both an incoming and outgoing at Premier League outfit Aston Villa have been confirmed late on Thursday night.
First up comes a fresh departure from Bruno Lage’s squad.
The player to have taken his talents elsewhere ahead of tonight’s fast-approaching transfer deadline? Leander Dendoncker.
As per announcements across the clubs’ respective social media platforms, Belgian international Dendoncker has linked up with Wolves’ Premier League rivals Aston Villa on a permanent basis.
The deal is understood to have set Steven Gerrard’s men back a sum in the region of £13 million.
And Wolves, as alluded to above, have wasted little time in securing a replacement for their now-departed midfield star.
As per John Percy of The Telegraph, the Midlands outfit have secured a deal with French outfit Metz, over the signing of the highly-regarded Boubacar Traore.
The transfer is expected to come in the form of a season-long loan, featuring an option to buy for €11 million in the summer of 2023.
Traore, in turn, is set to undergo his Wolves medical in short order, ahead of putting pen to paper on a contract with Lage’s troops.
