Former Arsenal and Liverpool winger Jermaine Pennant has penned a three-month loan deal with Championship side Wolves.

The 29-year-old took to Twitter this morning to explain that after a meeting with Stoke City boss Tony Pulis, he would be looking for a short-term switch away from the Britannia Stadium.

"The gaffa said I can go out on Loan to get some games! I was as shocked as much as some of you's will and I can promise we have not fell out," Pennant explained.

"Can't go premier league only can go abroad or championship and I'm only agreeing until jan so be gone for 2 months or so."

The controversial midfielder started his career at Notts County, before Gunners boss Arsene Wenger paid £2million to bring him to north London at the age of 15. However, Pennant failed to fulfil his promise at Arsenal, amidst a string of disciplinary problems.

After a number of loan spells, the former England U21 international moved to Birmingham City in 2005, and a year later was on his way to Anfield, snapped up by former Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez.

In 2009 he left the Reds to sign for Real Zaragoza, before returning to the Premier League with Stoke in 2010. But, after making just two appearances in all competitions for the Potters this season, Pennant has dropped down to the Championship, in search of regular football with Wolves.

Molineux CEO Jez Moxey, said: "Stale [Solbakken] wanted to find a high quality replacement for our injured wingers and we're very pleased Stoke have agreed for Jermaine Pennant to join us on loan for an initial three month period.

"He is a high quality player and Stale is delighted to have secured his services until at least the New Year."
