Wolves given Milijas go-ahead

02 July 2009 02:24
Wolves have completed the signing of Nenad Milijas after being granted a work permit for the Serbia midfielder. Milijas, 26, agreed a four-year contract with the newly-promoted Premier League side last month and has now officially joined them from Red Star Belgrade. Wolves had to appeal to earn a work permit for the midfielder as he had fallen just short of making the required number of international appearances during the past two seasons. "We are delighted that we have successful received the work permit for Nenad," chief executive Jez Moxey told the club's official website. "With the case that we were presenting, we were always quietly confident that we would receive the permit, but until it was completed we weren't getting carried away. "We had a very good hearing and are delighted that Nenad will now be able to join the team in Australia and look forward to his Wolves career." Meanwhile, Wolves are also close to completing the signing of Sunderland defender Greg Halford for a fee of around £2million.
