On Friday afternoon, whilst most Wolverhampton Wanderers fans were still pouring over the fallout from Thursday evening’s Europa League defeat to Sporting Braga in our opening Group K match, reports emerged stating that we were already in talks with key midfielder Joao Moutinho over a contract extension at the Molineux.

Whilst it hasn’t been a disastrous start to the 2019/20 campaign, it has been difficult and frustrating but given the success the 33-year-old Portuguese international has had with us, and the way he’s slotted in and become such a key player, news of a contract extension was much needed good news after a bad week on the footballing front.

Having arrived from Monaco for a snip £5million fee, our reigning Player of the Year from 2018/19 already boasts 49 starts and seven substitute showings in his time with us so far, and according to The Telegraph we have now opened talks on a two year extension, with him only being contracted up now until next summer.

The Telegraph believe that the talks are already close to being concluded and they speculate the deal could be signed within the ‘next ten days’ and that would certainly be a boost to everyone.
