Ghana and Arsenal midfielder Emmanuel Frimpong is set to join Wolves on loan until the end of the season.

Talks between the two Premier League clubs are ongoing and a deal is expected to be concluded by Monday.

The 19-year-old has made 14 appearances this season – starting three Premier League matches, three Carling Cup ties and three Champions League games.

He will bolster a Wolves midfield that has lost Jamie O’Hara for a month after undergoing surgery on a double hernia.

Wolves drew 1-1 at Arsenal on Tuesday and sit two points clear of the relegation zone in 17th.

The fifth-place Gunners appear well-stocked in midfield, with Jack Wilshere – who came through the club’s youth system with Frimpong – and Abou Diaby working their way back to fitness.

Meanwhile, it is understood the deal to take former Arsenal striker Thierry Henry back to Emirates Stadium in a two-month loan deal from New York Red Bulls is likely to be finalised after Saturday’s match against QPR or on Sunday.

    This loan thing is great for this guy. Arsene Wenger will know the hard way that some birds are not meant to be caged because their feathers are just too bright.
