Wolves have announced the signing of South Korean international Hee Chan Hwang on a season-long loan from Bundesliga side RB Leipzig.
The 25-year-old, who is able to play both centrally and out wide, will now provide a fresh attacking option to Bruno Lage, who also has the likes of Adama Traore and Raul Jimenez.
Speaking about the new arrival, club technical director Scott Sellars said: “Hwang’s a player we’ve watched for a few years now, when he was at Salzburg. He’s got a lot of talent and is very versatile – he can play across all the front positions, a striker, second striker or wide. He had a fantastic goal scoring record at Salzburg and will give us a good option in the front areas.
“He’s got a good pedigree, having played Champions League football and at a World Cup. He’s got a lot of pace, power and strength – he’s probably a little bit different to what we’ve got, and we think he’s a strong acquisition for the squad.
“Ultimately, we felt it was an area where competition is important, so when somebody becomes available on loan, with his quality and experience, and he has a desire to come, it’s becomes an exciting opportunity – we’re certain he’s going to add quality to the group.”
