Wolves target Nigel Quashie will be joining his eighth Football League club
Wolverhampton Wanderers have made a second loan capture from West Ham United inside a week by signing experienced midfielder Nigel Quashie.
Following young winger Kyel Reid's arrival, Wolves boss Mick McCarthy has again targeted Upton Park for his second move of the January window.
Quashie, 30, has just returned to West Ham following a two-month loan stay at Wolves' local rivals Birmingham City.
The Scotland international has signed on loan until the end of the season.
London-born Quashie, who started his professional career with Queens Park Rangers, has made just eight starts in two years at West Ham.
The majority of that time has seen sidelined with a persistent foot injury.
But he still has another 18 months left on his Hammers contract, having signed a three-and-a-half year deal when he signed following an unhappy 12 months with Wolves' neighbours West Bromwich Albion in January 2007.
And, although he has been dogged by the unfortunate statistic of having been relegated from the Premier League with four separate clubs (QPR, Nottingham Forest, Southampton and West Brom), he does one have significant promotion on his CV.
He played a key role in the Portsmouth side that went up to the Premiership as Division One champions under Harry Redknapp and Jim Smith in 2003 - the same season Wolves last won promotion, via the play-offs.
And he will hope to have the same impact on McCarthy's Championship leaders, who currently stand five points clear despite having not won in four matches.
