Wolves sign Portugal international midfielder Joao Moutinho

Wolves have completed the signing of Joao Moutinho from Monaco for £5million.

The Portugal international has signed a two-year deal at Molineux ahead of the start of the Premier League season next month.

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, who won Euro 2016 with Portugal, has spent the last five years at Monaco.

He won Ligue 1 last year while also claimed three Primera Division titles with Porto, along with the 2011 Europa League.

He joins fellow Portugal international Rui Patricio at Wolves with the pair having played at the World Cup together this summer.

Patricio joined from Sporting Lisbon after terminating his contract following an attack by fans on the club’s training ground but Sporting have complained to FIFA and want compensation.
