Sunderland striker Danny Graham joins Wolves on loan until end of the year

Wolves have signed Sunderland striker Danny Graham on loan until the end of 2014.

Graham, 29, has moved to the Championship side after playing only once for the Black Cats this season.

He will stay with Wolves until Dec. 31 and will link up with his new club on Monday.

Graham told the official Wolves website: "Wolves is a good club which has done very well over the last year, and this is a good opportunity for me to try and play some regular football and get back to scoring goals."

Wolves could be without both Nouha Dicko and Bakary Sako in January and February if Mali qualify for the African Nations Cup, and have been looking for extra firepower.

On-loan striker Yannick Sagbo returned to Hull this week after failing to score in four games.

Wolves are ninth in the Championship, and head coach Kenny Jackett believes Graham can help them to push for promotion.

"We feel this is a very good move for us," he said. "He has the goalscoring record that we are looking for and experience of playing up front in the Championship.

"With our forward line, he brings another dimension with his experience and goalscoring record. We look forward to him starting with us and working with the squad towards the Nottingham Forest game."

Graham, who has not scored for the Black Cats in 14 games since a five million-pound move from Swansea in January 2013, went on loan to both Hull and his first club Middlesbrough last season.
