Anderson Talisca's protracted transfer to Wolves drags on, and while the delays will be frustrating for supporters - the hope is that he is a special player and will be worth it when he eventually arrives.

The striker's work permit was approved at the weekend, before his partner gave birth, and there is another small hold up while he awaits his visa.

Portuguese newspaper O Jogo suggest a potential deadline, reporting: "The Brazilian is now only waiting for the issuance of work visa, which must be delivered by the end of the week to head to England in order to carry out medical examinations and sign the contract."

Whether the end of the week means Friday, or even Sunday, is unclear, but it seems there is progress, and a deal cannot be too far off from completion.

The paper confirms his work permit has been approved by the FA.

Talisca would become Wolves' fifth signing since their takeover, following Silvio, Helder Costa, Joao Teixeira and Jon Dadi Bodvarsson.

His arrival is in part due to the working relationship being established between Benfica and Wolves, brokered by agent Jorge Mendes.
