Championship side Wolves have signed Ivory Coast international Yannick Sagbo on a three-month loan from Hull City.

The 26-year-old Marseille-born striker, who is available for Wednesday's home game with Huddersfield, is scheduled to stay with Wolves until January.

Sagbo scored four goals for the Tigers last season following his £1.6m move from French Ligue 1 side Evian.

But £10m record signing Abel Hernandez and Nikica Jelavic have been preferred by manager Steve Bruce this term.

"He has a lot of power and ability and we believe he will link very well with our other forwards."

Sagbo, who is yet to feature in the Premier League this season, played for Hull in the Europa League and in their 3-2 defeat at West Bromwich Albion in the third round of the League Cup.

"We saw that game against West Brom last week," Wolves head coach Kenny Jackett said. "We were looking for someone who was ready to play now and Yannick is fit and ready.

"He made a good fist of the Premier League last year at Hull. Now they have gone in a different direction but he has a lot of power and ability and we believe he will link very well with our other forwards."

Wolves, promoted as League One champions in May, currently lie third in the Championship.
