DONE DEAL: Wolves sign Portugal number one Rui Patricio

Wolverhampton Wanderers have confirmed the signing of Portugal international goalkeeper Rui Patricio on a four-year-deal from Benfica.

The Premier League new boys certainly haven’t been messing around since the transfer window swung, and have once again used their links to Portuguese super agent Jorge Mendes to good effect in snapping up the highly rated 30-year-old ‘keeper.

Patricio, who has 70 caps for his Country, will move to the East Midlands of a free transfer, due to the cancellation of his contract with Sporting Lisbon after several of the SuperLiga sides players were attacked by the clubs Ultra’s recently.

The Portugal number one will certainly have no issues settling in at Wolves with last seasons Championship Champions managed by his countryman Nuno Espírito Santo, as well as having a sizeable Portuguese contingent within their playing squad.

Patricio will become Wolves second summer signing, with the club having already concluded a deal for highly-rated Mexico striker Raul Jimenez from Sporting Lisbon last week.
