Wolves confirm signing of Sasa Kalajdzic from Stuttgart

Wolves have completed the signing of striker Sasa Kalajdzic from Stuttgart on a permanent basis.

The 25-year-old Austrian, who stands at 6’7, had attracted interest from a number of sides across Europe, with Manchester United among those to have considered Kalajdzic earlier in the summer window.

However, he has opted to take his talents to Molineux, putting pen to paper on a five-year deal which includes the option for a sixth.

Wolves have parted with around €22m (£18.9m) to get the deal done.

Wolves technical director Scott Sellars said: “We are very happy to secure the signing of Sasa, who is a talented young striker, has many excellent attributes to his game and fits the profile that we have been looking for this summer.

“Sasa has had great success in Germany’s Bundesliga, and we are looking forward to seeing what he can do in the Premier League.”

Kalajdzic leaves Germany with a record of 22 goals and 11 assists in 51 Bundesliga appearances, and now joins a Wolves side who have netted just twice in their opening four games of the campaign.

Bruno Lage’s side, who have also added Goncalo Guedes this summer, were the Premier League’s lowest scorers outside the bottom three last season – 38 goals in 38 games – and Kalajdzic has been identified as the man to address that.
