Zubar chose Wolves after discussions with Arsenal's Gallas

New Wolves signing Ronald Zubar consulted his high profile Premier League compatriots including William Gallas over his move to Molineux, reports the Birmingham Mail. The Marseille defender also spoke to Gallas's Arsenal team-mate Gael Clichy and Blackburn's Chris Samba before opting to join Mick McCarthy's top-flight newcomers.

"At Marseille I spoke a lot with Tyrone Mears and Bolo Zenden who have obviously played in the Premier League," said the 24 year old.

"They both spoke very highly of the chance of joining Wolves.

"I've also spoken to William Gallas and Gael Clichy at Arsenal and Chris Samba at Blackburn.

"I'm still young but I've had a lot of experience playing with Marseille in the Champions League and with the French national team.

"I was also the captain at my first club Caen.

"I want to bring all that experience to Wolves and hopefully it will help me have a successful season."
