Nouha Dicko made a permanent move to Wolves in the transfer window of January, 2014, having previously been on loan at the club for the closing weeks of the 2012/13 campaign.

Prior to joining Wolves he had enjoyed an excellent loan spell with Rotherham, scoring six goals in six games, and was quickly in his stride at Molineux scoring within ten minutes of his second ‘debut’ in the win against Bristol City.

His goalscoring streak continued, notching 13 goals from 19 games for Wolves in an impressive start to his permanent Molineux career, including a hat trick against former club Rotherham.

Dicko then followed up helping Wolves to the League One title with an impressive return to the Championship, maintaining his prolific record and finishing as joint top scorer with 15 goals.

His value to the team was highlighted by the signing of a new long-term contract in the summer of 2015, and the handing-over of the famous number 9 shirt for the following campaign. 

Unfortunately however, he suffered a cruciate knee ligament injury in August, 2015, which ruled him out for the season.

Signed by Wigan from Strasbourg in 2011, Dicko’s first sustained run in English football came via two loan spells with Blackpool, when he scored nine goals in 38 appearances, the majority of which came from the substitute’s bench.
