Wolves are delighted to announce the signing of Willy Bolly who joins on a season-long loan from FC Porto.
Boly spent three years at the Clairefontaine Academy in France where Wolves spent part of pre-season two years ago, before joining Auxerre, emerging through their reserve team.
In 2014 he moved to Portugal to join SC Braga, then joining Porto last summer, putting pen to paper on a five year contract.
The French central defender expressed his delight at joining Wolves. he says that playing in England has always been a dream of his.
The 26 year old said, “I’m happy to come to Wolves, I want to play well with this club and I want to make history here.
“I love this country and I love the football that is played here - I have always wanted to play here in England and now it’s a dream come true for me and now I will hopefully stay here for a long time.”
Signing from FC Porto, Boly is familiar with Wolves’ Head Coach Nuno Espírito Santo from his time at the Portuguese club.
He believes that knowing the coach will make adapting to English football an easier task.
“It’s good for me because I already know the coach, I know the way that he works and that was determining factor in me coming to Wolves as it will be easier for me to adapt to the way of playing in this country alongside Nuno.
“I think it was two weeks ago that he asked me to come with him to Wolves and I said ‘Yes’.
“After the holidays I came back and signed for this club.
“I don't know how different the way of playing in England will compare to football in Portugal so I will have to wait and see.
“I am very excited to play football in England - I have always watched it on TV and now I have the chance to play here.
“When you play football, you play to win every game - if you are in the top league, you want to stay there and if you are in the second then you want to achieve promotion.
“This is normal and every player has these goals to play at the highest level they can.
“The message is work together and win together - winning is for everyone.”
