Wolves are set to further explore the possibility of linking up with Hungarian First Division club Ujpest FC.

The Championship outfit are to welcome a delegation from their European counterparts, just a month after representatives from Wolves travelled to the Budapest-based club.

Senior members will visit Molineux, watch the league games against Derby and Barnsley and observe the work carried out by the club`s staff, while four of their best young players will join in training with Wolves` Academy.

Chief executive Jez Moxey said on Wolves` official website: "We have had some initial exploratory discussions in Budapest with the officials of Ujpest FC and are looking forward to welcoming them to Wolverhampton.

"Our initial discussions touched on the issues of loaning players, football academies and the development of young talent, Champions League football, scouting and recruitment in Europe and the sharing of best practice both on and off the field. We think there may be potential for some kind of alliance between the two clubs."

Ujpest FC chief executive Joe Borocz added: "In Hungary, all young players aspire to play in England one day. I firmly believe that it would be mutually beneficial to explore all angles as to how we may be able to co-operate."
