DONE DEAL: Wolves defender Bendeguz Bolla rejoins Grasshoppers

Wolves defender Bendeguz Bolla has rejoined Grasshoppers on season-long loan.

The Hungary international enjoyed an impressive 2021/22 season with the Swiss club, amassing 30 appearances and four goals.

Wolves' strategic player marketing manager Matt Jackson said of the move: "It's good continuation for him. He was excellent last season and is comfortable in the environment. He's established himself in the international squad and this move should allow that to continue. We want him to really impose himself and be one of the best players in the league next season.

"For a young player developing, exposure on the pitch is always a positive thing. He went in and helped the group, fitting in very easily with a bit of a Wolves theme. He was over here with Hungary for their win over England, so he's had a good year and it's about progressing now.

"He gets the support from Wolves and is monitored very closely. He's very much a part of this. Ultimately, for players, once the season starts and you're playing games, the environment you're in doesn't really matter. It's all about how you're performing and where you're comfortable.

"The more you move players, the more risk you're taking, and when they find an environment that works, with a coach that backs them, sometimes continuing is as good as anything."
