WOLVES TARGET BENJANI

Wolverhampton Wanderers and two other clubs are targeting Manchester City striker Benjani. The Zimbabwe international joined the Citizens in 2008, but after failing to make a significant impact at the Eastlands club he was packed off on loan to Sunderland.

However, the temporary switch to Wearside proved to be underwhelming, as the forward failed to score a single goal in the Premier League during his time at the Stadium of Light.

On his return to City, the 31-year-old was released as a free agent, and he is now free to talk to any club he chooses.

WOLVES SNAP UP VAN DAMME

Wolves have made their first summer signing with the capture of Belgium full-back Jelle Van Damme from Anderlecht.

Van Damme moves to Molineux on a three-year deal with an option for a further 12 months after the two clubs agreed an undisclosed fee for the 26-year-old. Manager Mick McCarthy was pleased to have snared Van Damme, who has experience of life in England having played for Southampton in the 2004/05 campaign.

"Jelle is a player we've been watching for a long time and I'm delighted we've managed to sign him," said McCarthy.

Wolves Seal New Deal

WOLVES have announced a new two-season deal with sponsors Sportingbet.com.

With one year remaining on the current agreement, the online bookie have agreed to extend their association with the club until the end of the 2012/13 season.

Details of the deal have not been made public but the club did confirm it was a seven-figure contract.

Wolves chief executive Jez Moxey said: "This is a major off-the-pitch achievement for Wolves.
