Earlier this week it was being reported that Wolverhampton Wanderers youngster Dominic Iorfa was now close to securing a pre-contract agreement with Scottish Premiership side Celtic.

The 23-year-old is out of contract at the Molineux come next summer and he is now free to sign fresh terms with clubs outside of the English game should he wish.

Having fallen out of favour following our Portuguese revolution, he’s only made two appearances for the side in the campaign of 2018/19 and those were EFL Trophy outings for our Under 23 squad as we took on Mansfield and Lincoln City earlier in the campaign.

He spent last season out with Ipswich Town so he doesn’t feature in head coach Nuno Espirito Santo’s plans moving forward and he is one of a number of players we are looking to move on, for their benefit as well as ours.

The claim came from the Mirror’s daily transfer ticker originally and now seems to have picked up some steam.

I can see this making sense from our perspective, albeit not going through until the summer but it could encourage a loan deal for the second half of this campaign as they look to get him settled in. It would also be a good step for the lad, but some Celtic fans appear unconvinced.
