Aston Villa could receive £4m from Adama Traore’s transfer from Middlesbrough to Wolves, according to the Birmingham Mail.

The Sun have reported that Nuno Espirito Santo’s side have activated the Spanish winger’s £18m release clause, and a move is expected to be finalised very shortly.

We are believed to have a 20%+ sell-on clause that should secure us a windfall of £4m, although the Birmingham Mail stop short of saying this is the precise amount.

Sources have told the newspaper that the sell-on fee is “significant”, but the precise number is not known.

Traore has only spent two years at Boro following his departure from Villa Park, but after a less than stellar first season with the North East club in the Premier League, he had a more productive second campaign.

In 40 appearances in all competitions last season, he scored five goals and provided 12 assists for Tony Pulis’s side. Whether the 22-year-old is able to make an impact for Wolves in the top-flight, we shall see.

  • Given the quality of the Mail’s reporting, this figure must be in doubt. IF Boro sell for £18m and we sold him for say £8m, then surely the sell on ratio is only payable on the increased value, and not the original too? If the increase is £10m then would this not mean £2m to us and not £4m, if the ratio of 20% is correct? Just saying…

  • Your correct m8.
    It’s just they give you that little bit of hope that we can pay off the FFP ,with Jack obviously, but keep Chester with the so called big payouts then RIP the carpet from under you.
    Used to love reading the mail till the last few years because of the doom and gloom they love to write about us.

  • “…give you that bit of hope”. Something Wolves fans are going to have to get used to afraid. Every piece of speculative media un-reporting has failed to tell everyone that Traore has already said he`ll be a Boro player this season. Meaning Villa and Wolves lose-out again!
