Wolves captain Conor Coady has hailed the impact of Hwang Hee-chan at Molineux.

The South Korea international is currently injured, and faces a short spell on the sidelines.

The club recently informed supporters that he would be returning in February, although it’s not clear at what point in the month it will be.

Hwang made a very positive start to life in the Black Country.

He scored four goals in his first seven outings for the club, including a brace against Newcastle United in what was probably his best game so far.

He scooped the club’s Player of the Month award for October.

But since then, the 25-year-old’s form has dipped.

Hopefully he will benefit from a rest as he recovers from his injury, and we can see the Hwang that first arrived at the club make a return in February.

He may have struggled slightly in recent weeks, but Coady has lavished praise on his teammate for the start he has had.

When asked how he felt Hwang had adapted, the 28-year-old didn’t skip a beat. He told Stadium Astro: “Incredible.

“He’s a fantastic person first and foremost. I think when you see someone coming in your dressing room you want them to help you as a team, but you try and make them fit in as much as you can. Honestly, he’s been incredible.

“You see what he does on the pitch and what he gives us. He is so so intelligent, he’s such a strong runner with the ball, and he links up with the boys so well. He’s been a brilliant addition.”

Hwang Hee-chan has been a great addition for Wolves

These are some lovely words from Coady, about a player who has indeed made a great impact at Molineux.

He did tail off towards the end of 2021. But Hwang looks like he could be a real star for Wolves in the Premier League.

Style-wise, he seems very well-suited to English football.

One would expect Wolves will be making his move permanent in the summer, barring his form falling off a cliff when he gets back playing.
