Wolves' Dave Jones believes the £135,000 sale of Colin Larkin to Mansfield will prove to be beneficial to both clubs and the player himself.
The highly-rated young Irish striker is expected to put pen-to-paper on a deal at Field Mill on Thursday after agreeing personal terms with Stags boss Stuart Watkiss.
The 20-year-old is well down the pecking order at Molineux and Jones believes his move to the Third Division outfit will be beneficial for all parties concerned.
He said: "It is a good deal for us because it includes a sell-on clause if Colin moves on and it is good for Mansfield because they are getting a young striker.
"Colin has fallen down the pecking order at Molineux and now he will get the chance of playing first-team football."
Larkin will become the second striker to leave Wolves this summer after Cedric Roussel moved back to Belgium to link up with Mons on a year-long loan move.
Jones is now looking to off-load former Everton hitman Michael Branch but, to date, there have been no enquiries about the player.
