Doumbia makes Wolves switch permanent

Doumbia makes Wolves switch permanent

Wolves have wasted no time in snapping up Tongo Doumbia from Rennes on a permanent deal.

The 23-year-old midfielder completed a £3million move yesterday after agreeing personal terms on a contract which runs until 2016.

Wolves had an option to buy him when he initially made the move to Molineux on loan during the summer.

After 18 appearances Wolves gaffer Ståle Solbakken had decided that he'd seen enough and moved quickly to get the deal completed.

"In the short time Tongo has been here we have already seen how quickly he has settled and what he can offer us," Solbakken to Wolves Official Website.

He continued: "I am also confident that when he gets even more used to the country and to his team-mates then his game will grow even more and he will get better and better.

"I am delighted we have signed him permanently and I think he can be an important player for Wolves for the next few years."

The Mali international becomes Solbakken's sixth permanent signing as Wolves boss following Frank Nouble, Bjorn Sigurdarson, Razak Boukari, Bakary Sako and Georg Margreitter to Wolverhampton at a cost of around £10million.

Considering the sales of Steven Fletcher, Matt Jarvis, Michael Kightly, Adlene Guedioura and Sam Vokes equal around £30million that looks like a good bit of business when trying to establish a strong financial footing following relegation from the Premier League, but also trying to build a squad capable of challenging for promotion in the Championship.

Vital Wolves Comment: Happy we've signed him up, or should we have waited a little bit longer to assess how he gets used to the English game?

Agreed, very glad we have pinned him to a perm deal. Not so happy to hear that Frimping couldnt agree terms with Wolves - after "trying everything he could" ... if this has anything to do with Moxey I will go spare.

it does unfortunately seem to be a recurring theme around here. Hopefully he'll take the Kightly road back and not the Murray one.

Though probably just sour grapes, the fact that Davies had a go at our medical staff and even Stale said he was surprised that Boukary, Diombia and Margrita all get crocked so soon after joining ... sounds worrying
