Wolves are set to sign winger Adam Hammill after agreeing a £500,000 deal with Barnsley according to the Yorkshire Post.

Mick McCarthy watched Hammill in the Tykes' game with Coventry just over a week ago and it was obviously enough for Wolves to table a serious bid.

The newspaper also claims that Hammill will sign a contract worth in the region of £20,000 a week at Molineux after Wolves activated a get-out clause in his current deal.

Nottingham Forest, Cardiff City, Leeds United and Everton have also been linked with a move for the Liverpool-born 22 year-old but Wolves have acted quickly to agree a deal.

Hammill joined Barnsley from Liverpool in 2009 and turned down an offer from Leeds United.

During his 17-month stay at Oakwell, he has become a firm favourite with Barnsley fans and scored 13 goals in 83 appearances.
