Midfielder Christian Herc has signed for Grasshopper, according to the Swiss club.

The star has departed Wolves after joining the academy back in 2015 from Nitra.

Herc never made a first-team appearance for Wolves.

He had a few loan spells, but never did enough to tempt Nuno Espirito Santo into giving him a chance.

Firstly, he went to Dunajska Streda in 2018/19.

Secondly, he played for Viktoria Plzen in 2019/20.

And last season, he played for Czech first league side Karvina, where he made 32 appearances.

Only in April, Herc said he would be sitting down with Molineux officials to discuss his future.

 

It seems a decision was made relatively quickly.

Grasshopper have said Herc has signed a contract with them until 2023.

Herc goes to a club that hosted a number of Wolves players on loan last term, including Toti Gomes, Oskar Buur, Connor Ronan and Leo Bonatini.

Wolves are yet to make any kind of announcement about Herc’s departure.

No surprises here

Unfortunately it wasn’t to be at Wolves for Herc.

The Slovakian is 22 and so it would have been difficult to stay beyond this window, given he’d not made a first-team appearance.

Hopefully the move works out well for him, and he can excel and maybe head to a top-five league some day.
