Wolves closing in on deal to sign Aurelio Buta

Wolves are reportedly closing in on a deal to sign Royal Antwerp’s highly-rated full-back Aurelio Buta.

Buta has impressed in Belgium this season having joined from Benfica last summer.

The 22-year-old has been attracting the attentions of a number of Premier League clubs, but the Mirror have insisted that the Molineux side will beat the likes of Newcastle and Watford to the defender.

It’s expected that Nuno’s side will complete a loan move in January with the idea of signing the Portugal youth international permanently should he impress.
