Eggert Jonsson to join Wolves from Hearts
Well this one caught most by surprise, Wolves have signed Hearts` Iceland international Eggert Jonsson.
The 23-year-old will join on January 1st, from the Scottish club for an undisclosed fee and will sign a three-and-a-half year contract.
He has won 12 caps for his country and his versatility is highly regarded as he is capable of playing at full-back, centre-half and anywhere across midfield.
Hearts are currently struggling financially and have only recently paid the players wages for November and it is thought we might have snapped up a bargain when we agreed a fee last week.
Jonsson then travelled down and completed his medical before watching the game against Norwich.
'I'm really pleased to be here and looking forward to getting started,' he told Wolves Official Website.
He continued: 'I'm looking forward to getting into training and then fighting to get into the team.
'Hopefully I can bring something to the squad and help the club.
Vital Wolves Comment: With the transfer window set to open shortly, we had begun to be linked with quite a few players by the media, but, Eggert Jonsson was not even on the medias radar and this transfer comes as a surprise.
With 153 appearances for Hearts over the past five years he has experience of British football, so lets hope he doesn't take too long to adapt to the Premier League.
