The 32-year-old is off-contract at the end of the season, with the Newcastle Herald reporting Gidley will accept a two-year deal with the Wolves.
Gidley has also been linked with a move to France-based Catalans Dragons, however it now seems he will confirm a deal with the Cheshire-based club.
The Australian can play anywhere in the backs or hooker, but has most recently played as a half back for the Knights.
Gidley has played 236 games for the Knights since making his debut for the club back in 2001.
The veteran has 12 Test caps to his name, while he was a regular for the New South Wales State of Origin side between 2007 and 2011.
He has long harboured ambitions to follow in his brother Matt’s footsteps and play in the Super League.
Matt Gidley played four seasons at English giants St Helens between 2007 and 2010.
