Wolves have completed the signing of striker Raul Jimenez on loan from Benfica.

The 27-year-old joins on a season-long deal and Wolves have an option to buy him for around £30m next summer.

The Mexico international forward is away with his country ahead of the World Cup in Russia and will replace Benik Afobe who joins Championship side Stoke City for £12m just days after signing for Wolves in a £10m deal.

Jimenez previously played for boyhood side Club America before moving to Atletico Madrid for the 2014-15 season.
