Bolton Wanderers midfielder Mark Davies is set to undergo a medical with Sheffield Wednesday on Thursday, according to Sky Sports.
The deal had previously stalled over the last couple of days, due to a disagreement regarding personal terms and a severance package with the player and the Hillsborough outfit, however, the issues that threatened to pull the plug on any deal have since been resolved.
Davies did not play a part in Bolton’s 3-2 defeat at the Owls on Tuesday night, after a transfer was agreed between the two second-tier sides.
The 27-year-old had been at Bolton since January 2009, when he was signed from Wolverhampton Wanderers for £1m, his departure from the Macron Stadium will come as a bitter blow to Neil Lennon’s side, who are rock-bottom of the Championship standings, and face a winding-up petition from Revenue and Customs.
Bolton could yet be forced to sell more of their playing squad, as they look to starve off administration, so Davies is unlikely to be the last out of the door this month.
Should Davies pass his medical, then he will become the club’s second signing of the January transfer window, after they completed the permanent move for Jack Hunt from Crystal Palace.
Wednesday also extended the contract of their Scottish midfielder, Barry Bannan, by a further three-and-a-half-years. The 26-year-old has impressed since signing a permanent deal from Crystal Palace in the summer, and has been rewarded for his fine-form with a new deal.
