Wolves have agreed a deal with Blackburn Rovers for young striker Jemal Johnson.
The American-born 21-year-old linked up with the Championship club earlier this week to train with Mick McCarthy's squad.
Johnson quickly made an impression on the new Wolves boss and is now close to a move to Molineux.
Blackburn have accepted an offer, with the forward undergoing a medical and discussing personal terms in the Black Country.
During his time with Rovers, Johnson has struggled to make an impact and spent spells on loan at Preston and Darlington last season.
He made 10 appearances for Mark Hughes' men, but started only one game and is now poised to have the chance of regular football at Wolves.
Meanwhile, McCarthy has opted against pursuing an interest in Danny Senda, who started a trial with the club earlier this week.
