Wolves boss Bruno Lage is delighted with the instant impact of Hwang Hee-chan.

Hwang already has three goals to his name and got both as Wolves beat Newcastle 2-1 last time out.

The South Korean is on loan from German side RB Leipzig with the option to buy next summer – and Lage has been impressed with what he has seen so far.

“I knew the player before because when I was at Benfica I had some reports on him, so when we had the chance to bring him, we took the decision to come," said Lage.

“It was a question of opportunity for the club, and we took the decision to bring him.

“He can give us these kind of things, and I want these kind of things in our team.

“I think he has adapted to the Premier League. He is fit and fits our way to play because we need a player like him.

“Top players can enjoy our game and I think he is a top player like the other guys."
