Wolves have signed Hull defender Steven Mouyokolo on a four-year contract for an undisclosed fee.

The Frenchman, who has an option on a fifth year, completed his move to Molineux following the Tigers' relegation from the Premier League.

Mouyokolo joined Hull from Boulogne in January 2009.

The 23-year-old becomes Wolves boss Mick McCarthy's third summer signing, joining defender Jelle Van Damme and former Burnley striker Steven Fletcher.

Mouyokolo, who has also played for French sides LB Chateauroux and FC Gueugnon, admitted he was thrilled with the move.

"I'm very excited and very happy," he said. "It was important for me to try and stay in the Premier League because I enjoyed last season, even though it was disappointing that Hull were relegated.

"I'm delighted to be staying in the league and even more so at a club with such history like Wolves.

"As soon as I knew they were interested it was always going to be a move which really appealed to me.

"I've heard a lot of good things about Mick McCarthy and have enjoyed talking to him - I'm looking forward to working with him and improving my game."
