Jota Deal Confirmed

Jota Deal Confirmed

Wolverhampton Wanderers have confirmed that we are exercising the buy option we hold on Diogo Jota and his loan from Atletico Madrid will turn permanent this summer.

Having joined us over the summer on a season long loan from the Spanish side, the 21 year old already has well over 100 career appearances, including Champions League action from his time at Porto and a host of caps at Portugal's youth international levels and he's more than hit the ground running with us hitting 12 goals in 30 appearances to make him joint top scorer.

Executive Chairman Jeff Shi told the Official Website.

'Diogo has been an important player for Wolves this year and his abilities are clear for everybody to see. As a management group, our aim is to provide the Head Coach with a playing squad that gives him the best possible chance to succeed and I believe Diogo is certainly a player that does that, and will continue to do that beyond this season. Whilst the agreement won`t be fully confirmed until the 1st July, by making this statement of our intent, it again allows us to be as open and honest with the fans as we can be with regards to how we wish to take the club and the squad forward.'

Shi went on to add.

'Of course, in addition to Diogo, we have a number of other players who are also part of the playing squad under loan agreements, and we will continue to make assessments of the whole playing group as we progress through the season. By moving to confirm terms with Diogo, and the signing of Helder Costa last winter, it shows that we can provide a great environment for loan players to thrive and develop in Wolves, and we are sure that this will continue with other players who have come in and successfully committed themselves to the club.'

Sporting Director Kevin Thelwell added.

'I am thrilled that Diogo has seen enough of the Club and the city over the last six months to want to make this his permanent home. He was a player that was well known to us prior to the summer and so we were obviously delighted to be able to sign him for the season. To secure his services on a permanent basis is a huge coup for the Club and I have no doubt that he will help us to achieve our goals both now and in the future.'

At least that clears up speculation about his future.
