Wolves are set to complete their second signing of the January window with young Danish goalkeeper Andreas Söndergaard set to join the club.
The Odense stopper is very highly-rated in his homeland and had been attracting the interest of three high-profile Italian clubs, but according to the Birmingham Mail he is set to join the Championship side.
Even though he hasn’t made his first-team debut, the 17-year old has represented Denmark at youth level, and has seriously impressed whilst playing for the U19 side with his club.
Given that, Wolves are expected to pay around £400,000 for the teenager which would represent a fairly significant outlay for such a young player.
Söndergaard would be the second signing of the month at Molineux following Rafa Mir’s arrival from Valencia, although it’s clear that the keeper will spend the foreseeable future with the development team.
It had been revealed earlier in the week that Wolves were expected to move for younger players to help their U23 side in the remainder of the window, and the news regarding Söndergaard comes hours after Wolves were linked with 20-year old Ben Stevenson from Coventry.
This shows that Wolves are certainly very serious about bringing in younger players to work their way up at Molineux as £400,000 is a big investment for a Championship on club on a 17-year old.
Andreas Söndergaard clearly has built a good reputation for himself in Denmark and even though the clubs aren’t named, the fact three Italian sides were interested shows there was competition for his signature.
When the move does complete it will be a big opportunity for the player who will look to kick-on and prove what all the fuss is about.
