Hull City manager Steve Bruce is confident Yannick Sagbo will shine at Molineux following the completion of his loan move to Wolves.

The arrivals of Abel Hernandez, Tom Ince, Gaston Ramirez and Hatem Ben Arfa have increased competition in offensive areas for Hull City. Yannick Sagbo had already fallen down the pecking order after Nikica Jelavic arrived in January.

Manager Steve Bruce has seen fit to offload the Ivorian to Championship side Wolves, arguing that the 26-year-old needs game time.

“He’s a very good player and I’m sure he will do very well for Wolves,” Bruce began, speaking to the Express and Star.

“He is big strong and powerful and he can move – he is quick and he is a good footballer technically too.

“You have got yourselves a really good player and footballer.”

Sagbo started tonight as the Old Gold were defeated by Huddesfield Town in the Black Country.

Speaking about the move, the former Evian man had the following to say: I know Wolves is a big club in England and I know Bakary Sako so I spoke to him about it. He told me the coach is a good guy as well and I am happy to be here.”
