Boubacar Traore trains with Wolves after moving from Metz last week

Boubacar Traore has trained with his new teammates at Wolves, after completing a move to the club on transfer deadline day last week.

The midfielder was the final signing of the window, joining from French club FC Metz and a season-long loan.

A deal was agreed after Wolves had sold Leander Dendoncker to Aston Villa.

It looked touch and go at one point. But news that an agreement had been reached inside the last two hours of the window.

Official confirmation then came from Wolves at around midnight.

Given the how last-minute the deal was, Traore actually did his medical in France, with Wolves officials flying out to oversee it.

He remained there for a few days before flying to England, and Traore has now trained at Compton Park for the first time.

He will hope to be included in Wolves’ matchday squad to face Liverpool at the weekend.

Wanderers go to Anfield on Saturday and are looking to heap more misery on the Reds after their midweek defeat to Napoli in the Champions League.

Boubacar Traore will be another great squad option for Bruno Lage

Traore signing for Wolves has kind of gone under the radar a little bit.

He ended up signing for the club very late, and he then remained in France to tie up loose ends.

And of course, over the past few days, all the talk has been about Diego Costa and whether he will complete a free transfer to the club. It looks like he now will, which is very exciting.

But Traore is a cracking addition by Wolves.

He really caught the eye last season for Metz and is a dynamic midfield player with a high ceiling.

He will bring a bit more mobility and tenacity, and hopefully he will see plenty of minutes. Given the new rule of being able to make five substitutes in games, there’s a reasonable chance he’ll feature quite a lot.
