Wolves have completed the signing of defender Greg Halford from Premier League rivals Sunderland.

The 24-year-old right-back, who can also play in midfield, has signed a three-year contract with the option of a further year.

"I'm excited about moving to Wolves, it's going to be a great season and hopefully we can establish ourselves in this division," said Halford.

Wolves have already signed Kevin Doyle and Andrew Surman this week.

Halford, who has also played for Colchester, Reading, Charlton and Sheffield United, added: "Wolves are a big club and the infrastructure is there.

"There's a great training ground, great stadium and a large fanbase and all the plans are in place for Wolves to really establish themselves.

"I want to try to prove myself at the top level - I've done well in the Championship but I want to do it in the Premier League as well."

Halford has made almost 250 senior club appearances and scored 34 goals.
