Paul Gladon has joined Wolves from Dutch side Heracles, it has been announced.

The Championship club have confirmed on their official website that the 24-year-old striker has completed a move from the Eredivisie outfit and signed a three-year contract with the option of a fourth year.

Gladon, 6ft 2in, becomes the second Dutchman to move to Molineux this week after Ola John joined from Benfica on loan.

He is the ninth summer addition at Wolves and the eighth since the £30million takeover by the Chinese investment group Fosun but was unavailable for Saturday’s defeat to Huddersfield.

Gladon helped Heracles to a sixth place finish in the Dutch Eredivisie in 2015-16. He scored six goals in 26 matches in all competitions, although only four of those appearances were starts.

 

The nine summer signings are Andy Lonergan, Helder Costa, Silvio, Joao Teixeira, Jon Dadi Bodvarsson, Prince Oniangue, Cameron Borthwick-Jackson, John and Gladon.

In other Wolves transfer news, the club are also working on a deal to sign a Chile international striker.
