A big boost for Wolves
Wolves are reportedly in advanced talks with midfielder Joao Moutinho over a new contract at Molineux, following his brilliant performances since joining.
Moutinho joined Wolves after their promotion to the Premier League last year.
After some time at Monaco, the Portuguese star joined up with several of his compatriots to form a new-look Wolves side, equipped to take on the Premier League.
Safe to say, his move was a resounding success after a brilliant season for both Moutinho and Wolves.
Nuno Espírito Santo’s side managed to finish seventh in their first season back in the Premier League.
That even brought with it a spot in the Europa League.
It was an impressive individual season for Moutinho too, who was named Wolves’ player of the season, scoring one goal and assisting eight.
Now, he looks set to sign a new contract at Wolves.
Moutinho could sign new deal ‘in the next ten days’
According to the Telegraph, Wolves are in advanced talks with Moutinho over a new deal.
They claim: ‘Moutinho is in line for a two-year extension as Nuno Espirito Santo moves to keep the influential Portugal international at Molineux for the long-term, in a development which will lift some of the gloom over Wolves’s disappointing start to the season.’
It’s then suggested that a deal is actually quite close to being concluded.
The Telegraph claim a deal could even be done ‘in the next ten days’.
Safe to say, this would be a big boost for Wolves after what has been a poor start to the campaign.
