The club have had two offers worth £18million and £20million rejected for the Bristol City midfielder, but it is understood the money to secure his signing is now currently unavailable due to a risk of breaching the Premier League’s profit and sustainability rules.

Wolves have so far sold Ruben Neves, Nathan Collins, Conor Coady and Raul Jimenez for a combined £83million, but it is understood further player sales will be needed for the club to spend on summer additions.

The club have so far brought in Tom King and Matt Doherty on free deals, but in order to bring Scott and other targets in, Wolves will need to sell as things stands.
