Barnsley winger Adam Hammill last night travelled to Wolves for a medical ahead of completing a £500,000 move.
Hammill chose Wolves instead of Blackpool and will sign a £20,000-a-week deal at Molineux.
But his arrival will prompt speculation that the highly-rated Matt Jarvis could be on his way out of Wolves with Liverpool and Everton among his admirers.
Everton manager David Moyes is also keen on Anderlecht's Belgium international winger Jonathan Legear but the £5million price tag may be prohibitive.
