"I was at the game on Saturday and I was very happy with the result.


"There was a good atmosphere and it was very positive for the club for the season.

"The coach has said he likes me because I can get up the pitch and shoot and score.

"And I also like the vision of the club - everybody wants to get to the Premier League and that is a challenge that I like.

"It was my dream to come and play in England and today it has come true.


"I just want to start training with my new team-mates and then try to start winning some matches and give joy to the people and the city of Wolverhampton.

"Having played for different teams in now I think it is the second part of my career as I come to England, and I think it will be very good."
