Neil Warnock: "I think it's done. Victor is going to the Premier League and I think £2.5million is a snip for one of the best young players we've got.
"Manchester City should have bought him ages ago instead of messing about, but another Premier League club have made an offer.
"I've spoken to a lot of managers over the last six months and one of the managers who should have taken him in the last window has come to his senses.
"I expect to see Victor do very well in the Premier League and I'm looking forward to watching him."
That Premiership club is believed to be Wigan Athletic.
