LHU's Poorman College announces partnership with Wolverhampton Wanderers  Football Club

Everyone ‘confident’ Wolves exit will get done – Player ‘keen on move’, three-year deal on the table

Wolverhampton Wanderers are in ongoing talks with Standard Liege over a deal for Hayao Kawabe to move to Belgium this summer.

That’s according to journalist Sacha Tavolieri, who says negotiations between the two clubs are ‘advanced’ over a €5.5m deal including bonuses.

Kawabe has been at Wolves since joining for around €600k from Grasshoppers but has never made a senior appearance for the club and spent the second half of last season back on loan with the Swiss club, re-joining them 15 days after leaving.

It appears he will never change that fact, with Tavolieri reporting that Wolves and Standard are in advanced talks over a deal.


According to his information they are working to close a deal worth €5.5m plus bonuses, and all the parties involved are ‘confident’ of it being finalised sooner rather than later.

He also adds that Kawabe is ‘keen on the move’ and will sign a three-year contract at his new club once negotiations with Wolves are finalised.

Wolves midfielder Hayao Kawabe is set to move to Fortuna Sittard for £1.3m as the club makes further space in their squad, and budget, to rebuild for the new season.

Kawabe becomes the fourth player out at Molineux following the £47m sale of Ruben Neves to Al Hilal, Conor Coady’s £8.5m switch to Leicester and Nathan Collins’ £23m move to Brentford.

The latest deal, which could go through this week, brings to an end Kawabe’s 18 months with Wolves having signed from Grasshopper Zurich for £500,000 in January 2022. But he was loaned back to Grasshoppers and hasn’t made a first team appearance for Wolves.

The 27 year old became Wolves’ first ever Japanese player, was capped by his country and made his name in an attacking midfield role before signing at Molineux.

The Wolves squad are in Portugal at a training camp as they prepare for the 2023/24 Premier League season. They flew out on Tuesday for the nine-day camp that will include two behind-closed doors friendlies.
