Wolves have signed Icelandic forward Jon Dadi Bodvarsson from Kaiserslautern on a permanent deal.

The 6ft 3in striker starred for Iceland in Euro 2016, scoring against Austria and started in the famous 2-1 victory over England.

Bodvarsson has signed a three-year contract and the fee is believed to be at least £1m.

He becomes Wolves fourth signing in just five days after the captures of Portuguese trio Helder Costa, Silvio and Joao Texeira.

QPR had been chasing the 24-year-old but Wolves are believed to have out-bid their Championship rivals, who came close to agreeing a £1m deal.

Bodvarsson only moved to Kaisterlautern from Viking in January, after a prolific run of nine in 14 games for the Norwegian side in 2015.

He netted twice in 15 games for the German second-tier club before his Euro 2016 exploits.
