Prince joins Bastia on loan

Midfielder makes temporary return to France

Midfielder Prince Oniangue is to join French Ligue One club Bastia on loan until the end of the season.

The 28-year-old, who joined Wolves in the summer, will get the opportunity to enjoy some regular football having found first team options limited after returning to fitness following injury.

Oniangue had scored two goals from 11 appearances prior to picking up a hamstring injury which has ruled him out since the defeat to Brighton on October 18th.

The Congo international, who joined from Reims, will spend the remainder of the season in French Ligue One before the situation is assessed again in the summer.

“Prince was unfortunate in picking up an injury earlier in the season and being sidelined for a spell,” says Wolves Sporting Director Kevin Thelwell.

“Since he has returned to fitness the team has been playing very well and he has been unable to force his way back into the starting line-up.

“He is at an age where he really needs to be playing games, and, with his profile in France, there has been plenty of interest from different clubs.

“The deal has been done for him to join Bastia on loan until the end of the season, and then we will be able to revisit the situation and see what the future holds.”
