Adama Traore will have a medical at Wolves on Monday ahead of a club-record transfer from Middlesbrough, according to Sky sources.

The deal has been agreed between the clubs and, although Traore has a release clause in his Boro contract of £18m, it is understood Wolves are likely to pay more than that.

The Premier League new boys are set to pay an initial £10m up front, and then more in instalments which could take the total fee over £20m, depending on appearances.

Wolves have been active in the transfer market this summer, with Raul Jimenez, Joao Moutinho and Ruo Patricio all high-profile acquisitions.
