Berra: Relishing Wolves challenge
Christophe Berra has revealed the potential to play in the Premier League was a major factor in his decision to join Wolves.
The former Hearts captain completed a move to the Championship leaders on Monday afternoon, signing a four-and-a-half year contract at Molineux.
The 24-year-old defender watched from the directors' box on Saturday as Wolves claimed a 3-1 home win against Watford to move four points clear of Reading.
The Scotland international has since undergone a medical and agreed personal terms, and felt the opportunity was too good to turn down.
"I'm really excited to be coming to Wolves," he told the club's official website.
"It's an ambitious club with a lot of good young players who want to get into the Premier League and I'm no different.
"I know my first challenge is just to get into the team because they're top of the league and have been doing well, but it's one I'm ready for and am looking forward to.
"I'm leaving behind some good friends and some good people at Hearts but, when you want to play at the highest level, sometimes you have to move on.
"I'll hopefully get back up there at some stage to say my goodbyes. Now it's time to look forward and my new challenge."
