Wolves have taken up the option to sign Hwang Hee-Chan on a permanent basis.
The South Korean international has signed a deal which will keep him at Molineux until 2026 on the back of his successful loan spell.
He has spoken to the club website about the deal, sharing his delight at committing his long-term future to Bruno Lage’s men.
“I’m very happy to be here at Wolves until 2026. I feel very happy to play for a team with a really good manager and great teammates.
“On my first day here in Wolverhampton, I watched the game against Man United in the stands, and I had a great feeling and I really wanted to play.
My dream was to play in the Premier League and this game, my first game for Wolves, was when where my dream came true. I scored my first goal and it was a great moment. I was just so happy.
“My injury feels a lot better now and hopefully next week I can join the team in training again. I want to come back stronger and fitter than I was before. My goal now is the same that it was, to score goals and win games here.”
Wolves were clearly in no mood to allow any other club to muscle in on their deal, and they have moved swiftly to agree to sign him.
They do not have to pay the £14 million until the end of the season, but they are just confirming the move now which allows Hwang to properly settle in England.
Wolves fans will be hoping that Hwang can get back to full fitness as soon as possible and return to scoring goals in the race for European football.
