Wolverhampton Wanderers youngster Rafa Mir is spending life away from the Molineux in the season of 2018/19 as we agreed a loan deal with Spanish side Las Palmas to increase his experience and aid his development.

The highly-rated striker arrived at Wolves from Valencia back in the last January transfer window and he does now have four senior appearances to his name for us, following on from his debut against Swansea City in the FA Cup.

Having headed to the Spanish Segunda Division in August, he now has three appearances to his name for his new club and he scored his first goal for them in their tie at the beginning of September against Zaragoza.

With the international break currently in full flow, he was also rewarded with his first ever national call-up and pulled on the Spanish jersey for the first time at Under 21 level in their game against Albania.

He came on as a substitute, but with seconds remaining in the game, he found the back of the net to open his international account and fans are rightly hoping it’s a sign of things to come.

If he continues to develop and perform like this, for a reported fee of £2million we could well have a star on our hands – even if it’s early days for him.
