Portuguese winger Pedro Neto was ‘very happy’ to sign a new five-year deal with Wolves, as reported by wolves.co.uk

Neto signed for Wolves in August 2019 from Portuguese side Braga, and has secured his future at Molineux until 2025.

The 20-year-old has become a first-team regular for Nuno Espirito Santo’s side, making 52 appearances in all competitions.

Delighted with new deal

Speaking about his new contract, Neto said: “It’s been amazing being here. I love being here; the family that we are building, all the club, it’s been fantastic for me, so I’m very happy.

“This new deal shows I’m working very hard and I was expecting it because I worked for it. I always work to improve my game, so it comes with that.

“What I enjoy the most is the locker room and the time that we have together. It’s very special because I’m always laughing.

“They know that I am always joking with them, so they joke with me and I think it’s the most beautiful thing about this team.”

Neto scored his first league goal of the season in a 1-0 win over Fulham last month.

Influx of Portuguese signings

Neto is one of the many Portuguese players that Wolves have recruited since their promotion to the Premier League in 2018.

In the summer transfer window, the Midlands club signed 18-year-old Fabio Silva from FC Porto for a club-record £36 million.

They also brought in Nelson Semedo from Barcelona for £27 million, the 26-year-old has made 15 appearances for Portugal.

Daniel Podence arrived in the last January transfer window from Olympiakos for a reported £17 million.

Along with Ruben Neves, Rui Patricio and Joao Moutinho, Wolves have developed an impressive core of Portuguese players.

Since their promotion, Wolves have finished 7th twice and played in last year’s Europa League.
