Congo-Brazzaville international Prince Oniangue is pleased to have rejoined French Ligue 1 side Angers.

Oniangue joined the club on loan for the rest of the season from English Championship leaders Wolverhampton Wanderers.

The 29-year-old, who spoke to BBC Sport, made 31 appearances for Angers in the 2009/2010 season.

"I'm very happy to return home because I had a great period the last time I was here," Oniangue said.

"A lot has changed but it remains a familiar place with nice people, passionate fans and a friendly city.

"This loan is a big opportunity to play regularly and most importantly help the club maintain its Ligue 1 status," he added.

Oniangue, who has scored seven goals in 37 appearances for his country, spent the end of last season on loan at another French club Bastia.

The lanky midfielder, who was born in France to Congolese parents, has no option to make his move to Angers permanent.

He has also turned out for Rennes and Reims in the French Ligue 1.
