Wolverhampton Wanderers top 5 record sales with £42.5m deal agreed; featuring Leeds United loanee

0

After a long pursuit, newly promoted Nottingham Forest have agreed a deal worth up to £42.5m including add-ons to sign Wolverhampton Wanderers midfielder Morgan Gibbs-White.

The 22-year-old will become Forest’s 16th signing of the summer transfer window, with the England Under-21 international reuniting with Steve Cooper.

Gibbs-White was part of the England Under-17 squad that won the 2017 World Cup under Cooper and the pair worked together at Swansea City.

He scored one goal and provided one assist in 48 Premier League games.

Gibbs-White has played the full 90 minutes in both of Wolves’ two Premier League games so far, but following the club-record signing of Matheus Nunes, there was no guarantee that the man who spent last season on loan at Sheffield United would retain his place in Bruno Lage’s starting line-up.

If Forest do end up paying £42.5m for Gibbs-White, it would become Wolves’ second record sale.

With that in mind, HITC Sport takes a look at Wolverhampton Wanderers’ top five record sales.

Liverpool have signed Portuguese striker Diogo Jota in a £41m deal that could rise to £45m with add-ons in September 2020.

The former Atlético Madrid moved to Molineux on loan for the title-winning 2017-18 campaign before making a permanent £12.8m switch in 2018.

The Portuguese international played 131 games for Molineux and scored 44 goals.

In 85 games for Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool, Jota scored 34 goals and won the League Cup and FA Cup.

After spending the 2019-20 season on loan at Elland Road, The Whites have signed the Angolan winger on a permanent deal for £16m.

Jorge Mendes’ client, the 28-year-old, spent last season on loan at La Liga side Valencia and joined Saudi Arabian side Al-Ittihad on a season-long loan this summer.

In 109 appearances for Wolves, Costa has scored 19 goals and provided 19 assists, his best performance in the Championship.

With Jose Mourinho at the helm, Spurs paid £15m to sign the Republic of Ireland international in the Black Country outfit.

Doherty has started both of the opening games of the new Premier League season under Antonio Conte and the attack-minded right-back faces the challenge of establishing himself as a regular under the Italian after the north Londoners’ breakthrough this summer. .

In 302 games for Wolves, the 30-year-old scored 28 goals and provided 41 assists.

Rafa Mir – Sevilla

After impressing on loan in Huesca and scoring a hat-trick at the Olympics in Spain, Sevilla called up the striker.

Despite making just four first-team appearances for Wolves, Lage was unable to convince him to stay and Mir wanted to return to his homeland, joining Sevilla for £13.7m.

In his first season under Julen Lopetegui, he scored 12 goals and netted on the opening weekend of the new La Liga season.

Steven Fletcher – Sunderland

Sunderland signed striker Fletcher from Wolves in a deal believed to be worth £14m including add-ons in August 2012.

The Scot scored 12 goals in the Premier League a season ago, but that could not prevent the Molineux side from relegation.

Following his £7 million move from Burnley, Fletcher scored 24 goals in 67 games for Wolves.

The 35-year-old joined Dundee United in the summer after a two-year spell in the Championship with Stoke City.

In other news, Tottenham may now be offered the 29-year-old target to sell the outcast for £32million
