Traore swaps Middlesbrough for Wolves

Traore swaps Middlesbrough for Wolves

The 22-year-old moved to Molyneux on a five-year deal for a fee believed to be £18million.

Wolves are close to completing the signing of winger Adama Traore from Middlesbrough, according to the Daily Telegraph, in a club record deal.

That was after Wolves saw an initial £12million bid rejected by Boro.

He moved to Middlesbrough the following summer, scoring five goals in 71 appearances at the Riverside.




Traore impressed last season as Middlesbrough reached the play-offs, losing to Aston Villa in the semi-final.

Nuno Espirito Santo's side will open their Premier League campaign at home to Everton on Saturday evening as they return to top flight action for the first time since suffering relegation in 2012-13. The club has been looking at the versatile Ukrainian this summer and hope to persuade him with the prospect of more regular football.

The La Masia graduate will swap the Championship for the Premier League. Zinchenko played 14 games for City last season, but is aware he is only a back-up at the Premier League champions.

In total he becomes the club's fifth signing of the transfer window, with full-back Jonny Castro and forward Raul Jimenez having also been brought in by the Championship winners.
