Wolves confirm they have agreed a deal to sign free agent defender Phil Ofosu-Ayeh on a three-year contract.
The 25-year-old will join on July 1 on a Bosman free transfer after the contract with his current club, Second Bundesliga outfit Eintracht Braunschweig, expires at the end of June.
The German-born Ghanaian defender has spent his entire domestic playing career in Germany, beginning at SV Wilhelmshaven before enjoying spells at FC Rot-Weiß Erfurt, MSV Duisburg 33 and VfR Aalen.
Ofosu-Ayeh joined Eintracht Braunschweig in May 2015 and has gone on to make 20 appearances during his time in Lower Saxony.
“We’ve spent a lot of time looking at players abroad and 2. Bundesliga is a very strong league,” Wolves Sporting Director Kevin Thelwell said.
“Eintracht Braunschweig were just unfortunate to not get through the play-offs and be promoted to the Bundesliga.
“He’s a player that we’ve watched for some time and we think that he’ll bring with him a lot of experience and a lot of quality in the right-back position.
“The quality and the size of the German leagues is huge, the size of the fanbases at all of the clubs there are pretty outstanding and it’s an environment that’s as close to England as you can imagine.
“I’ve got no worries that he will be able to come in here and hit the ground running.”
Ofosu-Ayeh added: “For me it was always a dream to play in England and now I’ve seen everything here, I know that it’s a very big club and a traditional club. I’m very happy that I have the chance to play here.
“I’m very excited about everything – the club, the fans and my team-mates so I’m ready for my journey here.”
Ofosu-Ayeh has one full cap for Ghana, having made his debut in a friendly against Canada in October 2015.Soccer Accumulator Bonus
