Danny Graham joining Wolves

Wolves have signed Sunderland striker Danny Graham on emergency loan until December 31st.

The deal was agreed today with the 29-year-old frontman reporting back to Compton on Monday to start training with the team.

“I am delighted to have agreed a loan deal to join Wolves and am looking forward to meeting the lads on Monday and starting training,” said Graham.

“Wolves is a good club which has done very well over the last year and this is a good opportunity for me to try and play some regular football and get back to scoring goals.”

Graham has scored 114 goals in 376 career appearances to date, the striker bursting to prominence at Carlisle which helped secure a move to Watford, where he continued to get among the goals.

That included a run of scoring in seven successive games, equalling a club record at Vicarage Road.

In the 2010/11 season he notched 27 goals in 49 games with the Hornets, which led to a first Barclays Premier League chance with Swansea, Graham scoring 21 goals in 62 outings before moving to Sunderland in January, 2013.

Graham has since enjoyed loan spells with both Hull and Middlesbrough, but his action this season has been limited to a Capital One Cup appearance for Sunderland against Stoke.

Head Coach Kenny Jackett is pleased to have secured the striker’s services.

“We feel this is a very good move for us,” said Jackett.

“He has the goalscoring record that we are looking for and experience of playing up front in the Championship.

“With our forward line he brings another dimension now with his experience and goalscoring record.

“We look forward to him starting with us on Monday morning and working with the squad towards the Nottingham Forest game.”

“We are really pleased to have signed Danny,” added Head of Football Development and Recruitment Kevin Thelwell.

“He has a proven track record of scoring goals in the Championship, and he finished last season well with Middlesbrough when he got six in 13 games.

“Having met the player, he is raring to get going with us and we are looking forward to him getting started and scoring some goals.”
