Wolverhampton Wanderers have announced the signing of midfielder Mario Lemina from Nice.

The 29-year-old is Wolves' second acquisition of the January transfer window, after forward Matheus Cunha joined on loan from Atletico Madrid.

Lemina's transfer includes a further 12-month option for the club.

“He has to be a very complete player, with and without the ball. I think without the ball he’s a very strong player, and he knows his job," Wolves head coach Julen Lopetegui told the club's official website.

“With the ball, he has enough technically to play and to understand the play.

"Of course, we have never worked together, but now I’m going to know more about him and he has to know about us.”

Lemina has made 74 appearances in the Premier League, last featuring for Fulham in 2020/21, while he also spent two seasons at Southampton between 2017 and 2019.

If the required completed documents were submitted by midday Friday, the Gabon international could make his Wolves debut when they host West Ham United on Saturday.
