Wolverhampton Wanderers have confirmed the signing of Daniel Podence – their 14th acquisition of the season. The 24-year-old has signed a four-and-a-half-year deal at Molineux and will complete with the likes of Diogo Jota, Pedro Neto and Adama Traore for a starting place.
Podence spent 18 months at Olympiacos after joining the side from Sporting CP and went on to make 68 appearances in all competitions, scoring and creating 27 goals. This season, he’s contributed 10 goals in 27 games across the board.
The Portuguese winger, who can also play as a second-striker, will have fellow countrymen at Wolves (Nuno Espirito Santo, Rui Patricio, Ruben Vinagre, Ruben Neves, Joao Moutinho, Bruno Jordao, Diogo Jota, Pedro Neto) to help him settle and is another player represented by Jorge Mendes.
Podence has left an Olympiacos side sitting second in the Super League, one point adrift of PAOK Thessaloniki after 21 games. He joins a Wolves side currently seventh in the Premier League with 34 points from 24 games.
The 24-year-old is Wolves’ fourth signing of the January transfer window, following the arrivals of Leonardo Campana, Nigel Lonwijk and Enzo Loiodice. The Midlands outfit are still after another centre-forward, so they could be busy on deadline day.
