The winger spent time on loan with Reading FC last season and is set to return to England with Record reporting that Wolverhampton Wanderers have begun negotiating a deal with Benfica for the former FC Twente star.

John had been linked with a return to the Netherlands with Ajax or PSV, but those rumours have been mooted.

Benfica paid Twente around €10 million to sign John in 2012, but the one-time Netherlands international has only made 55 league appearances for the club, whilst also spending time on loan with Hamburg.
