Glenn Hoddle and Jez Moxey pulled off a real coup in the last hours of the January transfer window securing the services of Arsenal's young hotshot, Jeremie Aliadiere.
Wolves fans are more than familiar with the talented frenchman after he orchestrated the Gunners convincing 5-1 League Cup win in 03.
That night Aliadiere bagged a brace of goals and was instrumental in securing his side a convincing victory.
Since then he has suffered a sequence of injuries and unsuccesful loans, but that didn't deter Glenn Hoddle from pursuing the player that he feels will slot into the Wolves set up, perfectly.
'Things didn't work out too well for him with his loans (earlier this season) at Celtic and West Ham and he was a bit reluctant to go out on loan again. But he is my type of player and the kind of football we play here will suit him.' Glenn told the clubs official site.
Aliadiere was due at the Sir Jack Hayward training complex today to meet up with his new team mates.
And Glenn Hoddles decisions regarding his selection are set to be complicated by the length of the loan deal allowed by the F.A.
If Wolves play him too early he will not be eligible for the play-off's. Something at the forefront of Hoddles thoughts.
'He'll have his first day's training today and then have at least a week to get to know the players before he plays. He speaks very good English, which is always a plus.
'At the moment we are not going to start his loan until the Burnley game but it's possible we might bring it forward a week. It's a tough call because we want him available for the play-offs.' said Hoddle.
So Wolves fans may have to be patient a little longer to catch a glimpse of the impressive youngster who could yet shape their season.
But if previous performances are anything to go by, it should be well worth the extra wait.
