Sunderland defender Greg Halford is poised to move to Barclays Premier League newcomers Wolves for around £2million.

The 24-year-old right-back is set to complete a switch to Molineux in the next 24 hours.

It will be Mick McCarthy's third capture of the week after striker Kevin Doyle (Reading) and midfielder Andrew Surman (Southampton).

And it will take the former Sunderland manager's summer spending in total to approximately £12million.

Halford spent last season on loan at Sheffield United and will provide competition for Kevin Foley, who was Wolves' player of the year last season.

Halford made the £3million move from Reading to Sunderland two years ago when the Wearsiders were managed by Roy Keane - but had restricted opportunities at the Stadium Of Light.

He had spells on loan at Charlton and then the Blades.
