Joao Moutinho eyes Wolves contract extension

Moutinho to extend Wolves stay

Portuguese midfielder Joao Moutinho hopes to extend his contract at Wolverhampton Wanderers beyond next summer. The player has under 12 months remaining on his deal, and has indicated that he would like to stay at Molineux.



Spanish clubs Villarreal and Real Betis are both interested in Moutinho, but the 33-year-old would like to stay in the Premier League and win a trophy with Wolves.

“Thankfully I have won a trophy at every club, and I have left a legacy,” said Moutinho. “It’s important for me to learn, and contribute to the success of these clubs.

“The club I play for now has the same objective. I am here to help, and to give my all.

“It’s always been my ambition to play in England. I wanted to feel the passion of the fans that you can see on TV.

“Everything I have done in my career has led me here. My time so far in football has been amazing.

“I made each decision to ensure my career development.”

Moutinho has previously had spells with Porto and Monaco prior to his spell at Molineux.
