Hwang Hee-chan proved to be Wolverhampton Wanderers’ final signing of the summer transfer window.

The 39-cap South Korea international completed his loan move to Molineux a couple of days before the window closed.

Hwang is a player that Wolves officials have had a keen interest in for some time.

The club liked him during his RB Salzburg days.

Last year he headed to RB Leipzig, but his first season in Germany didn’t really work out too well.

So Wolves have been able to swoop and get him in on loan, and hopes are high over the 25-year-old.

So far, he’s made a couple of substitute appearances for the club.

Bruno Lage has been keen to stick with Raul Jimenez as the sole striker in a 3-4-3 system, with Adama Traore and Francisco Trincao either side.

He made an instant impact on his debut against Watford, bundling a second goal over the line.

He also looked bright in the defeat to Brentford. At one point, he produced an outrageous nutmeg on Pontus Jansson.

Wolves have recently released a bit of training footage of Hwang to help show supporters what he is all about, and he certainly looks very sharp and physically impressive.

It remains to be seen if, from this point on, Hwang will start starting for Wolves.

Jimenez has done OK, but could perhaps do with some support in attack as he seeks to score his first goal of the season.

On social media, fans have been talking about Hwang, and it seems that, despite not featuring too much so far, he has made a good impression:
