Republic of Ireland international Kevin Foley has joined FC Copenhagen after having his contract cancelled at Wolverhampton Wanderers by mutual agreement. 

The defender's deal at Wolves was due to expire in the summer and he leaves the Championship side after over 200 appearances in seven-a-half years.

Copenhagen are managed by Ståle Solbakken, who knows Foley from a spell as Wolves boss last year. 

Foley had been frozen out at the Championship club and had two loans spells at Blackpool in the last year.

Wolves manager Kenny Jackett said: “We thank Kevin for his excellent service to Wolves over many years

“On behalf of everyone at Wolves I would like to wish him all the very best in his future career.”
