Hibs goalkeeper Murray Johnson is closing in on a move to Wolves.

The promising teenage goalkeeper has been training alongside first team stoppers Ofir Marciano, Matt Macey and Kevin Dabrowski and has also featured in matchday warm-ups for Jack Ross' side.

He signed a new deal at Easter Road in January but recently spent time on trial with Manchester City amid interest from a number of English Premier League clubs.

However, according to reports, Wolves are set to win the race for Johnson with a £250,000 deal that would also net Hibs further incentives and add-ons.
