Wolves sign Porto midfielder Ruben Neves for club record fee

Ruben Neves was a mainstay in Porto's Champions League group stage campaign, starting five of the Portuguese club's six matches.
Ruben Neves is Wolves' record signing.

Wolverhampton Wanderers have broken their transfer record to sign midfielder Ruben Neves from Porto, also confirming a loan deal for defender Willy Boly from the same club.

Neves has signed a five-year deal, and although Wolves did not confirm the size of the fee they said it was a club record, with reports putting it at around £15 million.

The midfielder, who links up again with former manager Nuno Espirito Santo, has been joined at Molineux by Boly, who has signed a season-long loan deal.

"I'm very excited to play at this club," Neves told the club's official website. "It is a very big club and I hope to help the team to win their goals.

"I have always wanted to play in England and we have a good team. I think we can do good things this season."

Nuno said: "Ruben is a very good player who can bring new things to our squad.

"I know him well. He was very pleased to come here, and it's a good challenge for him."

Wolves are also close to signing former Norwich goalkeeper John Ruddy on a free transfer after Carl Ikeme's leukaemia diagnosis.

Ikeme, 31, is a popular member of the dressing room and will start treatment immediately.
