The English second tier club, coached by Nuno Espíritu Santo, will be the next destination for the young Valencia forward, who seemed set to sign for Real Madrid.

Rafa Mir is poised to leave Valencia, but not to join Real Madrid as previously thought. The 20-year-old forward will sign for Wolverhampton Wanderers, the team who are running away with the Championship under Nuno Espíritu Santo - the coach who handed the youngster his Champions League debut when the two were at Mestalla.

Rafa Mir answers Wolves call

Wolves and Valencia are tying up the final flecks of the transfer which, according to Superdeporte will boost the Spanish club's coffers by 2 million euros although no official figure has been mentioned by either club. The English side, as Diario AS can confirm, was willing to pay more than Real Madrid and Valencia for the young forward's services.

Rafa Mir, whose contract with Valencia is up on 30 June, told Valencia officials weeks ago that he wouldn't be renewing terms. He bid his team mates and coaching staff farewell on Tuesday at Valencia's training ground in Paterna. On Wednesday, Valencia confirmed that Rober Ibañez has joined Getafe, but the madrileños will loan him out to Osasuna for the remainder of the season.
