Jordao joins Grasshoppers on loan

Bruno Jordao will spend the remainder of the 2021/22 season on loan at Grasshopper Club Zurich in the top-flight of Swiss football.

The midfielder, who featured in Wolves’ Emirates FA Cup win against Sheffield United earlier this month, has spent the last year recovering from an injury he picked up while playing for Portuguese side Famalicao, which saw a successful loan spell in the Primeira Liga cut short.

But following a period of rehabilitation, training with Bruno Lage’s first-team and building up his fitness with game time for the under-23s – including scoring his first goal since returning from injury – the 23-year-old will look to get a run of minutes on the pitch with Grasshoppers.

Matt Jackson, Wolves’ strategic player marketing manager, said: “The plan for Bruno is to get regular game time having overcome a pretty nasty injury last year.

“During the last few months, he’s had a lot of top-quality training with the first-team group and a couple of games for the under-23s to help him build his fitness back up, but now he’s ready to go and experience a consistent run of games at senior level.

“He’ll be joining a team and an environment that we know well, we trust and have a great relationship with. We look at the benefit Connor Ronan had over at Grasshoppers last season and the improvement his loan over there made to his profile, and I hope the same can happen for Bruno.”
