Wolverhampton Wanderers have completed the signing of FC Porto midfielder Vitinha. The 20-year-old has joined the Wolves on a season-long loan from the Portuguese giants, with an option to make the move permanent next summer. He completed his medical at Wolves on Wednesday after completing international duty with Portugal under 21’s.
Wolves executive chairman Jeff Shi said: “Vitinha is a crucial signing and an integral component in our recruitment plan for this summer. He is an exciting and special young talent, with an abundance of technique and creativity, who can provide a fresh option this season. Vitinha signing demonstrates our ambition and strategy to further evolve our first team and continue to progress on the pitch.”
Vitinha is the second Porto player to have joined Wolves in less than a week. Fabio Silva became one of the most expensive teenagers in the world of football as Wolves paid Porto a staggering €40m for the 19-year-old striker. Silva and Vitinha played together last season at Porto, making two appearances together. Both Vitinha and Silva could make their debuts next week against Sheffield United.
