Wolverhampton Wanderers midfielder Connor Hunte is poised to join Stevenage on loan, HITC Sport understands from sources close to the club.

Former England Under-17 international Hunte joined Wolves in the summer of 2014 a year after leaving Chelsea.

Hunte was highly-regarded at Chelsea and was handed a three-and-a-half year deal at Stamford Bridge before leaving under a cloud.

The 19-year-old broke into Kenny Jackett's first-team plans at the back end of last season after consistently catching the eye playing for the club's under-21s.

Hunte made his debut as a substitute in the 2-1 win over Bristol City in March and he went on to make his second appearance against Blackburn a month later.

The skilful midfielder has yet to feature for Wolves this season under new head coach Walter Zenga and a number of clubs have enquired about taking him on loan.

However, Stevenage have moved quickly to try and bring Hunte to Broadhall Way as they look to bolster their midfield options before the close of the transfer window.
