Despite only joining Wolverhampton Wanderers from Burnley for £20.5 million last summer, Collins will now make a move to Brentford. His tenure at Burnley lasted just one season after he transferred from Stoke City in the summer of 2021.
During the previous season, Collins made 31 appearances for Wolves, aiding them in securing a 13th-place finish in the top flight. As the 22-year-old completes his transfer to Brentford, he will set a new record as the most expensive Irish player.
Meanwhile, Wolverhampton Wanderers rejected a £30 million offer from Napoli for fellow defender Max Kilman, citing concerns over Financial Fair Play issues within the club.
Collins will follow in the footsteps of Wolves’ captain, Ruben Neves, who recently joined Al-Hilal in Saudi Arabia for a club record fee of £47 million.
Brentford has already made significant investments this summer, securing the services of forward Kevin Schade for a fee in the region of £22 million following a successful loan spell at the club. Additionally, they acquired Netherlands goalkeeper Mark Flekken from Freiburg for £11 million. These acquisitions form part of Thomas Frank’s ongoing efforts to bolster the squad.
