Wolves striker Austin Samuel is edging closer to a season-long loan transfer to the Scottish Premiership with Aberdeen (DR).

Pittodrie manager Stephen Glass wants reinforcements for his squad and is turning to the Wolves talent who started the Premier League 2 campaign with a brace last week. The move could be completed today and Aberdeen will hold an option to buy.

Samuel has previously spent time away from Wolves at Bradford City and Kidderminster Harriers but now a permanent Wolves exit potentially beckons. The 20-year-old said of his future last week: “Hopefully I can go out on loan again, but you never know what the future holds.

“If I don’t, then I will obviously give my best for the team until I get another chance again.

“I can use my pace to get in behind the defence if they’ve got a high line. If I can get through on goal, one-v-one, I back myself nine times out of 10.”
