Wolverhampton Wanderers are eyeing a season-long loan for Middlesbrough winger Adam Reach, the Express & Star reports.

The Black Country side are said to have enquired over the 23-year-old's availability, with his exit deemed "likely" after Boro's promotion to the Premier League.

However, with Reach expected to cost in excess of £2 million, Wolves would prefer a temporary deal, according to the Express & Star.

And with left side pair Jordan Graham and Michal Zyro due to return from long-term lay-offs next season, a permanent move for Reach is perhaps unnecesary.

The Boro academy graduate spent last season on loan to Preston North End, where he scored four goals in 35 Championship appearances - one of which came in a 2-1 win for the Lilywhites at Molineux.

But the Teessiders' capture of Ajax winger Viktor Fischer, not to mention their continued pursuit of Gaston Ramirez, leaves Reach's first team prospects looking bleak at the Riverside.

Wolves are set for a busy summer, having finished 14th in last season's Championship, and have already signed goalkeeper Andy Lonergan from Fulham.

And bids for strikers Idrissa Sylla (Express & Star) and Matt Smith (the Sun) have been reported this week.
