Wolverhampton Wanderers confirmed the signing of Daniel Podence on Thursday afternoon, their fourth acquisition of the January transfer window, and supporters are delighted with the capture.

The 24-year-old contributed 10 goals in 27 games for Olympiacos this season and will strengthen an already talented array of wingers at Nuno Espirito Santo’s disposal – Adama Traore, Pedro Neto, Diogo Jota – so things are looking up for Wolves.

The Midlands outfit are currently seventh in the Premier League with 34 points from 24 games and could go fifth in the table with a win over Manchester United on Saturday. Wolves are also in the last-32 of the Europa League, so there’s a lot for supporters to be excited about this season.

It remains to be seen whether Podence will make the squad to face United, as he’s only just arrived at Molineux and hasn’t played for nearly four weeks. The 24-year-old’s last appearance came in Olympiacos’ 1-0 win over Panathinaikos (January 5), so he may be short of match fitness.

Nuno has Traore, Neto and Jota to call upon, however, so Podence could either be named on the bench or left out entirely.

Where do the club most need to invest in January?
