Wolves are close to completing the £4.5m signing of 20-year-old Colombian defender Yerson Mosquera.

Mosquera is understood to have attracted the attention of other Premier League clubs.

Wolves regard his arrival as a coup for their recruitment team.

The deal is also significant because it is one of the first examples of a Premier League club taking advantage of the post-Brexit transfer regulations, which allow greater access to overseas players outside the European Union.

As Mosquera is not a full international, it is felt the transfer could not have happened under previous rules.
