According to reports from Club Call, Newcastle United are close to sanctioning the transfer of Jack Colback to Wolverhampton Wanderers.
Colback pleased many Newcastle United fans by turning his back on fierce rivals Sunderland to sign for the Magpies back in 2014 but it has to be said that the midfielder has not quite managed to actually win over the St. James’ Park faithful with performances on the pitch.
The Englishman has been very inconsistent during his three years at Newcastle United so far and having fallen out with manager Rafael Benitez this summer following a bust-up, the midfielder has been made available for a transfer.
Despite his struggles at Newcastle, a number of Championship clubs have expressed an interest in signing Colback and now according to reports, the ambitious Wolverhampton Wanderers are plotting a swoop for the 27-year-old.
Wolves have signed no less than 14 players this summer as they bid to earn promotion into the Premier League and manager Nuno Espirito Santo is now said to be looking to add the experience of Colback into his midfield.
It is believed that Wolves are planning to sign the ex-Sunderland man on a loan deal and Newcastle will surely be keen on offloading the midfielder, who earns around £80,000-per-week, as soon as possible in order to reduce their wage bill.
