Freddy Eastwood aims to finish the season as Coventry City's top scorer after completing his move to the Ricoh Arena.
The striker has signed a four-year contract with the Sky Blues after joining for an undisclosed fee from Wolves.
Eastwood struggled for form during his sole campaign at Molineux and is determined to hit the goal trail with his new team.
A loan move to Coventry collapsed earlier this year and the Wales international is now looking forward to playing for Chris Coleman's side.
"The move has been talked about for quite a while, so I am just delighted it's finally going through," Eastwood told the club's official website.
"My agent kept me informed of what was going on in March and it was so disappointing that it didn't happen then, so I am really pleased to be coming here now.
"I was looking out for Coventry's results at the end of last season because I knew there was a good chance that they would be coming back in for me, so it was a huge relief that they stayed in the Championship.
"I know the manager is now looking to build things back up again here and, to be honest, he was a big factor in me joining the club. I have spoken to a lot of people in the game about him and everybody says he is a brilliant manager and nobody has a bad word to say.
"The Ricoh Arena is a great place to play your football - it is one of the best in the Championship, so I am looking forward to getting out there.
"My aim is to end the season as the club's top goalscorer - I've scored goals elsewhere and that is exactly what I want to do here at Coventry."
