Hwang Hee-chan is in attendance for Wolves’ game with Manchester United today.

The forward reportedly flew into the UK this morning ahead of having his medical. The player has joined on loan from RB Leipzig, and has now officially been confirmed by the club just before kick-off.

The South Korean international had been on Wolves’ radar for some time.

The club had interest in him while he was at RB Salzburg, which is really where he made his name alongside Erling Haaland.

There was disappointment for Wolves last year as he sealed a move to Germany.

But the club have now got their man, and also have an option to buy the player for around £13 million next year.

It is a positive move by Wolves, who have recently been rocked by news of an injury setback to Pedro Neto.

Neto could be out until around December, so a loan move for Hwang makes sense.


Especially since he can play as a striker as well.

Struggles in Germany, but Hwang a good addition

In terms of goals and assists, Hwang has not set the world alight since going to RB Leipzig.

But that doesn’t mean to say he wouldn’t be a good fit at Wolves.

Something else Hwang is known for is his brilliant work-rate.

He loves to press and that is something that is a staple of Lage’s style of play.

Potentially, he could very quickly endear himself to the Molineux faithful.

It is certainly a very low-risk signing.
