Sako completes Wolves switch from St Etienne

Wolves have completed the signing of French midfielder Bakary Sako from St Etienne on a three-year deal.

The 24-year-old watched the npower Championship draw against Derby at Molineux on Saturday and joined his new team-mates for training on Wednesday morning.

Sako becomes Stale Solbakken’s seventh summer signing and the Wolves boss is delighted with his latest capture.

“I am very pleased that we have completed the deal to sign Bakary,” he said.

Sako added: "I have always wanted to play in England because I believe that English football suits my style.

"And I think Wolves is a very good club for me to join."

Sako, a former France Under-21 international, scored 10 times in 67 league games for the Ligue 1 side.

The signing is a boost for Wolves following the news that midfielder Jamie O’Hara has faced another setback in his return from injury.
