Dutch winger Rajiv Van La Parra signed a three year contract after joining Wolves in the summer of 2014, after his contract with top flight Dutch outfit Heerenveen expired.

A skilful and pacy winger, van La Parra has been capped at various levels with Netherlands squads, all the way up to the Under-21s.

He started his career in the Academy at his home town club Feyenoord, but after impressing for the Netherlands in an Under-17 tournament in La Manga, was signed by Caen in the summer of 2008.

After three seasons with the French club, including contributing to a promotion to the top division, van La Parra moved to the Dutch top division and Heerenveen in the summer of 2011.

In the 2013/14 season, as Heerenveen finished fifth in the Dutch Eredivisie, van La Parra made 32 appearances, scoring five goals and chipping in with six assists.

His league debut with Wolves saw van La Parra produced an impressive assist in a 1-0 win over Norwich, and he went on to make 41 appearances in all competitions, scoring two goals.
