Wolves complete loan signing of striker Jorgen Strand Larsen from Celta Vigo


Wolverhampton Wanderers have completed the signing of Celta Vigo striker Jorgen Strand Larsen on a season-long loan deal with the option of a permanent move.

The Athletic previously reported that Wolves were in talks with the Spanish club over a deal to sign the Norway international. The move will automatically become permanent until 2029 should certain clauses be triggered, the Midlands club confirmed.

Wolves sporting director Matt Hobbs said: “Everyone knows that bringing in a number nine was really important to us this summer, and Jorgen was our number one target for the position, so we are really pleased to have signed him.

“He’s a great guy, who’s got a really good charisma and a great personality, and although he’s still young, still learning and still developing, he’s shown that he can score goals, and puts a lot of work and running in for the rest of the team. We talk a lot about humility at this football club, and he fits that perfectly.

“In Jorgen, we’re getting a guy whose career is on the way up and we hope to keep helping him improve and develop so he can get to the levels we think he can reach.”
