As reported the other day, Wolverhampton Wanderers are said to be close to a £15million transfer agreement with Sporting Lisbon for the services of Portuguese international goalkeeper Rui Patricio.

To save overly re-typing the basics of the wibbling from Sporting given his original free transfer move to the Molineux, the original report is copied in below.

With the fee, works out at around £15million, being roughly what we were reported to have originally bid for the experienced 30-year-old and were negotiating before things turned sour their end, it’s certainly no skin off our nose and the money would’ve been sitting in our budget anyway, so there’s no unexpected cost to Wolves here if a deal is done.

Additional coverage on a deal being struck by also suggest that Patricio may have agreed to repay his signing fee to the club, to ensure agreement was struck with Sporting here – so either way financially we seem to have won as his former club save some face based on the coverage of his fallout with them.

Across his opening eight games for Wolves, he’s more than proved a worthy acquisition so having this matter settled and not running on in the media can only be a bonus to us.
