29-year-old Jermaine Pennant believes his three-month loan move to Wolverhampton Wanderers was the perfect choice for the out-of-favour Stoke City winger.
The former England Under-21's international has had a chequered career over the years, right from his move from Notts County to Arsenal he has always remained a controversial character.
Through multiple driving offences, a short stay in prison, an electronic tag, a relationship with a glamour model girlfriend which ended with another police incident, relationships with soap actresses, to abandoning his Porsche outside a Spanish train station for five months after reportedly forgetting he owned it, Pennant hasn't ever been one to dodge the spotlight.
An undoubtedly gifted footballer, it's all the baggage that I have to admit I'm a bit concerned about, but on loan, with him desperate to prove himself, he sounds positive at least that this is the right move for him.
"I`m excited to have made the loan move, Wolves are a massive club and it`s been a tough game and a great encounter every time I`ve played against them.' he told the Wolves Official Website.
He added: "There were other teams involved but with the stature of Wolves, and their position in the table, helped make my mind up.
"I did some research into it and know they want to play good football and have got good training facilities.
"It is close to home as well and in all was the perfect choice.
Vital Wolves Comment: Does anyone else share my concerns regarding his off the field record? We've had issues with team morale before is Pennant a potential liability?
