Frimpong, 19, has been tipped for a bright future, but he has made just three Premier League starts for Arsenal this season.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has now seen fit to send the Ghanaian on a temporary move to top-flight counterparts Wolves, whose boss Mick McCarthy confirmed the deal after his side's 1-1 draw at Bolton.

Frimpong will spend the remainder of the season at Molineux, where he will hope increased playing time will aid his development and push for a regular role when he returns to the Emirates in the summer.

A statement on the Gunners' website said: "Everyone at Arsenal wishes Emmanuel the best of luck during his time at Molineux."

McCarthy said he hoped Frimpong could play some part in Wolves' game with Chelsea on January 2.
