Wolverhampton Wanderers are back to winning ways following their 2-1 home win over Aston Villa in their Midlands Derby clash in the Premier League. Wolves came into the game on the back of a disappointing 3-2 defeat to Leeds United at home just before the recently concluded international break and they were able to bounce back from the defeat with a win over Villa. Wolverhampton Wanderers were cruising to a win over Leeds United after scoring two first half goals through Francisco Trincao and Jonny Castro only for them to fall apart in the second half after Mexican striker Raul Jimenez was given his marching orders for two yellow cards. Leeds went on to win the game by scoring three goals after the Jimenez red card through the likes of Jack Harrison, Rodrigo Moreno and Luke Ayling.

Jackett Completes First Summer Signing

Kenny Jackett has completed his first summer signing as he secured the services of Tommy Rowe who was out of contract at Peterborough United which means that Wolverhampton managed to add him into the squad on a free transfer as the newly promoted Championship League club made their move faster than Leeds United and Blackburn who were some of the other clubs interested in signing the 25 years old player.

Tommy Rowe expressed his delight about being transferred to his new club Wolverhampton Wanderers as he talked during a press conference and said:


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.
