Wolves have completed the signing of former England winger Darren Anderton on a free transfer from Birmingham.

Anderton, 33, has signed a one-year deal at Molineux and joins up with his ex-England and Spurs boss Glenn Hoddle.

"I'm delighted to have Darren on board. He's a great footballer and he can do really well for Wolves," said Hoddle.

"I'm excited at the prospect of him playing for us, he has great vision. I know him inside out and I believe he will be a major asset to the squad."

Anderton was out-of-favour at St Andrews and he only made nine Premiership starts last season under Steve Bruce.

Wolves chief executive Jez Moxey added: "Due to unwanted publicity about the proposed deal on Friday, we faced competition for Darren's signature over the weekend.

"This was unfortunate but I'm pleased to say that we were finally able to resolve things late on Sunday."

Anderton may make his Wolves debut at home to Chester in the Carling Cup on Tuesday.
