Right-back Simpson has moved to Scottish Premier League outfit Kilmarnock, while winger Armstrong has gone to Championship side Dunfermline.

Academy product Simpson has been with National League North outfit Telford before his loan was cut short.

He spent time with Nuno Espirito Santo's first team during pre-season, joining the summer trip to Austria, but doesn't feature in the first-team plans at Molineux.

The 20-year-old has already trained with his new team mates. He told Kilmarnock's official website: "It feels good to be here. I'm nervous and excited as well, I've never been to Scotland before. Everyone's made me feel really welcome.

"I'd like to get a nice run of games and hit some form."

Like Simpson, Armstrong has yet to make a first team appearance at Wolves. He joined from Hamilton Academical in October 2015.

"I have been playing in under-23s football but now I am looking to get first team football," Armstrong told Dunfermline's official website.

"Hopefully I will get a chance to work my way into the team. It is up to me to work hard, train well and pay the gaffer back for signing me. I am just happy to be here."


A host of players have moved out on loan from Wolves this month.

Ben Marshall today completed a move to Millwall, Connor Ronan and Sylvain Deslandes joined Portsmouth earlier in the window, Prince Oniangue is with French side Angers, Duckens Nazon has gone to Oldham Athletic and Donovan Wilson has moved to League Two outfit Port Vale.

Polish winger Michal Zyro moved to Charlton for the rest of the season, while striker Aaron Collins switched to Newport County.
