Yannick Sagbo has tweeted about the 'new challenge' which awaits him after completing a loan move to Wolverhampton Wanderers. 

Sagbo finalised a loan switch from Hull City to Molineux today and he reacted to the news by posting the tweet which can be seen below.

Sagbo joins Wolves to solve their striking problems and he looks to have been a good addition by manager Kenny Jackett.

Although the Midlands have started the season in fine form, their lack of a centre-forward who can hit the back of the net regularly at Championship has cost them somewhat. 

Nouha Dicko has failed to find the form that he showed in League One last campaign, whilst Leon Clarke is still struggling since moving from Coventry in January. 

It means that Jackett was forced to bring in a striker and he has finally landed his man today, which he was naturally delighted about. 

“I’m very pleased we’ve managed to bring Yannick in," he said to the Express and Star. "He made a good fist of the Premier League last year at Hull."

“Now they’ve gone in a different direction but we’re really pleased to bring him here. He has a lot of power and a lot of ability and we believe he’ll link very well with our other forwards."

Wolves had previously been liked with the likes of Leicester City's Chris Wood and Southampton's Emmanuel Mayuka, but Sagbo is the man that they have eventually chosen. 

The powerful front-man has found his chances limited at the KC Stadium after their summer arrivals.

Nikica Jelavic and Abel Hernandez are both ahead of him in the striking positions for Steve Bruce's club and it meant that a move was necessary for him to get first-team football.

Sagbo has a point to prove at Molineux as he has struggled to hit the back of the net since his move to England from Evian in 2013. 

The Ivorian international has scored just twice in 28 games at the top-level so a move down a division may do good for his confidence.

Sagbo's first game could come tomorrow when his new Wolves side take on Huddersfield Town.
