Wolves midfielder Elliott Bennett is expected to complete a loan move to Bury in the coming days.
The teenager made 19 appearances for the Shakers last season after arriving on a similar deal in January and made enough of an impression to entice Alan Knill into making a summer move to bring him back to the club.
The Bury boss admits that he faces competition from elsewhere in his bid to land the 19-year-old, but is confident that he will back at Gigg Lane for the 2008/09 campaign.
"He's coming here," Knill told the club's official website.
"There have been other clubs in for him but he wants to come here, we want him here and (Wolves boss) Mick McCarthy is all for him coming here because he knows he is going to play.
"Mick thinks he will develop here. I've spoken to Elliott and he needs a season where he is going to be playing.
"There is no point in him going to a so-called bigger and better club and being on the bench. He needs to be playing every week, that's how he will develop.
"The last time I spoke to him he said he was coming and it's the same with Mick McCarthy so I kind of take their word for it rather than anyone else's."
Meanwhile, Knill admits that he has been suitably impressed by all of the trialists currently bidding to earn a contract with the club.
There are four hopefuls looking to impress the boss, with former Manchester United reserves team striker Phil Marsh among them, and Knill accepts that he has some tough decisions to make regarding their futures.
"All of the trialists have done their bit and brought something to the table," he said.
"Both strikers - Marshy and Gary Wales - look bright and lively and then there's Michael Jones the left-winger who can cut in off the left wing and is a good, competent footballer and Danny Reach who can play almost anywhere.
"Obviously we're looking for a striker and we've lost Nicky (Adams) so we're looking for a left winger too.
"But the decision is looming on the trialists and hopefully we'll have a look at them against better opposition on Saturday (against Huddersfield) but if it's a no, the sooner you can say the better so they can go and find another club."
