English Club Wolves Sign Portuguese Midfielder Joao Moutinho From Monaco



Wolves have completed the signing of Joao Moutinho from Monaco for £5m on a two-year deal.

The vastly-experienced playmaker, the third most-capped player in Portugal’s history with 113 appearances, arrived in Wolverhampton on Tuesday to finalise his move.

It is a statement of intent from Wolves, who won the Sky Bet Championship title last term, as they prepare for their return to the top flight after a six-year exile.

Moutinho’s agent is Jorge Mendes, who has close links with Wolves.

The midfielder will join a number of Portuguese players already at Molineux, including Diogo Jota, Ruben Neves, Ruben Vinagre and new goalkeeper Rui Patricio.

The 31-year-old, who has spent the last five years at Monaco, scored one goal and provided seven assists for the French side last season.

Moutinho helped Monaco win Ligue 1 in 2016/17 ahead of a star-studded Paris Saint-Germain side.

Before joining Monaco in 2013, he won three Primera Division titles with Porto, along with the 2011 Europa League.
