Sigurdarson can make a big impact at Wolves says Solbakken

Wolves boss Stale Solbakken is of the belief that Bjorn Bergmann Sigurdarson can make a very positive impact at the club next season.

The Championship club have signed the 21-year old Icelandic striker from Lillestrom for around £2.4million and Solbakken insists he has what it takes to help Wolves back to the Premier League.

"I've seen him quite a lot and he can make a difference already this season in some games," said Solbakken. "If we'd waited, we'd have no chance to compete for him because if he'd done well for half a year or a season more, he'd be out of our reach.

"But it's also important to bear in mind he's only just turned 21 and he's just played half a year at Lillestrom.

"His goalscoring ability can improve, his coolness can improve, but I can see the raw material is very much there.

"He's got the physique to can handle the Championship, he's got speed, two good feet, and he can also jump well in the air.

"So if we can work with him each day and improve his understanding, he's got everything it takes to play at a higher level than now (Norway) and maybe higher than the Championship."
