Wolves have announced the signing of Paraguayan winger Enso Gonzalez from Libertad.

As we reported yesterday, the youngster travelled to the West Midlands for an medical ahead of a move to Wolves.

The 18-year-old has signed a five-year contract and joins Wolves for a reported £5million fee.

Wolves sporting director Matt Hobbs told the club’s official website: “This is a transfer we’ve worked on for a while and we’re delighted to have Enso joining us. He’s an exciting, young player, who will fit in well with our dressing room and within the DNA we’re trying to create.

“We wanted a front player who could play across the line and give us something different, and Enso is the name our recruitment team pushed.

“His creativity stood out, playing forward, being aggressive in possession and doing his work out of possession, but for me it was more what he does offensively. Most players do the other side of the work if you’re getting the right sort of people, but with Enso I’m excited to see what he gives us going forward.”
