Former Norwich City goalkeeper John Ruddy is set to sign for Wolves in an emergency deal to cover for stricken Carl Ikeme.

The Midlands outfit moved fast after Ikeme, veteran of more than 200 appearances for Wolves, was diagnosed with acute leukaemia.

Ruddy is available on a free after leaving Carrow Road at the end of last season.

The 30-year-old had been tipped for a move to Championship side Sunderland.
