Wolves forward Hwang Hee-chan is expected to make his loan move to Molineux a permanent one, according to reliable journalist Tim Spiers.
The Lowdown: Hwang impresses for Wolves
The South Korean left RB Leipzig for a temporary spell last summer as he looked for regular playing time elsewhere.
Hwang has enjoyed a productive spell at Wolves so far, scoring four goals in 11 Premier League starts and helping Bruno Lage’s side to sit ninth in the table.
Wolves have the option to sign the 25-year-old on a permanent deal but that may need to be sorted by the end of this month, or else they run the risk of another team swooping for the forward.
Who should Wolves sign?
The Latest: Spiers makes positive claim
Taking to Twitter on Sunday, Spiers simply delivered a four-word verdict regarding Wolves’ move for Hwang, saying that it is expected to be completed:
In a tweet in which he shared an accompanying article from The Athletic, the journalist claimed: “Hwang likely to join.”
The Verdict: No-brainer for Wanderers
Hwang has made an immediate impression at Wolves so it makes complete sense to retain his services, given his age and the quality that he has shown.
The 43-cap South Korea international has already shown a good understanding with Raul Jimenez, and his versatility means that he could also be a long-term replacement for the Mexican in a central role.
Granted, Hwang’s form has dipped a little in recent weeks, with the goals drying up completely since netting against Leeds on October 23, but he has done enough to show that he is worth taking the plunge upon for a permanent transfer.
In other news, Wolves have been linked with a move for a central midfielder. Find out who it is here.
