Wolves have signed Polish international midfielder Slavomir Peszko from FC Cologne.

The 27-year-old, who can play in midfield or on the right wing, has put pen to paper on a season-long loan with a view to a permanent deal.

Peszko started his career in Poland with Wisla Plock, scoring 28 goals in 143 games, before joining Lech Poznan in 2008.

Eleven goals in 68 appearances followed there, before moving to Cologne in January, 2011, where he scored twice in 43 outings.

He also boasts plenty of international experience, with his 24 caps including one goal, against Denmark.

While not making the Poland squad for this summer’s European Championships, he has been told by new coach Waldemar Fornalik that he will be considered for selection if he shows his form with Wolves.

Wolves boss Ståle Solbakken is delighted to be linking up with the winger once again.

He said: “Slawo is a player who can operate on both wings and had a very good first half to the season last year, setting up a lot of goals for Podolski.

“To be honest, and I think he would admit this himself, the second half to the season wasn’t as good and was maybe complicated by trying to get into the Polish squad for the Euros.

“But I know the quality that he can offer us including great acceleration.

“He is also not afraid, so while he may not be the biggest player in stature he is fearless which is one of his real strengths.

“Like a lot of us, I also think he will be looking for revenge for last season, and he is ready for a new challenge.

“I am delighted that new challenge is going to be with Wolves.”
