"He's a technically good striker who has already proven his eye for goal," said Wolves coach Dieter Hecking. "We'll obviously give him the time he needs to get used to his new surroundings in the Bundesliga, and to integrate into the team."

The 19-year-old played a total of 58 games for Real Madrid's first and second teams, scoring 32 goals in the process. Mayoral also won the UEFA European Under-19 Championship in 2015, ending the tournament as the top scorer with three goals.

Mayoral will link up with his new team-mates at their training camp in Bad Ragaz, Switzerland on Saturday.
