Guedes wraps up Wolves switch

Wolves have wrapped up the signing of Goncalo Guedes for Valencia in a deal worth around 37 million euros. The Portuguese international striker has been brought in to supplement the club's attack, as Raul Jimenez picked up an injury in pre-season.

The player has signed a long term contract and will be available for this weekend's Premier League game against Fulham.

Chairman Jeff Shi said of the Guedes move: "We have been monitoring Goncalo for a long time and are very pleased to welcome him to Wolves.

"He has natural talent and has performed very well across Europe and for his country, and we think he is well suited to the Premier League.

"Goncalo worked with Bruno Lage at Benfica and played with many members of our squad previously, so we're confident he will settle quickly into the group here.

"Very few transfers are ever straightforward, and this was no exception, with a number of clubs trying to secure the player right up until the last minute. Now, we are delighted that Goncalo is a Wolves player."
