(Reuters) - Wolverhampton Wanderers have exercised their option to sign on-loan South Korea forward Hwang Hee-chan on a permanent deal from RB Leipzig until 2026, the Premier League club announced on Wednesday.

British media reported that Wolves paid a fee in the region of 12 million pounds ($16.21 million) for Hwang, who moved to England on a season-long loan in August.

Hwang, 26, has made 15 appearances in all competitions for Wolves this season, scoring four times.

"He's been a fantastic addition... he's not had the experiences he would have liked at Leipzig and he wanted a change, and he's grabbed his opportunity here in the Premier League," said https://www.wolves.co.uk/news/first-team/20220126-hwang-set-to-become-permanent-wolves-player Wolves technical director Scott Sellars.

Wolves next play Norwich City in the fourth round of the FA Cup on Feb. 5.
