Wolverhampton Wanderers are close to offloading Patrick Cutrone on loan to Valencia for the rest of the season after agreeing a deal with the Spanish club for the striker.  

Cutrone had been on loan at Fiorentina in an 18-month deal which was due to expire at the end of the season.

However the 23-year-old was recalled earlier this month following a disappointing time in Serie A, having failed to score a single goal this season.

Although he has since made four appearances for Wolves, including two in the Premier League as well as the FA Cup, the striker is now again surplus to requirements in the West Midlands and is close to joining Valencia.

Cutrone joined Wolves from AC Milan in a move worth £20million in the summer of 2019 but failed to settle at the club and in 28 games across two seasons he has scored just three goals. 

Wolves boosted their attacking options last week with the signing of Willian Jose from Real Sociedad who went on to make his debut in the 0-0 draw against Chelsea on Wednesday as a substitute.
