Podence signs for Wolves

Wolves have secured the signing of Portuguese winger Daniel Podence from Olympiacos, subject to international clearance.

The 24-year-old can play on either flank and provides a fresh attacking option to Nuno Espirito Santo, signing a four-and-a-half-year deal.

Podence has already made 27 competitive appearances for the unbeaten Greek Super League leaders this season and scored in the Champions League back in September.

A product of the Sporting CP Academy system, which is responsible for Rui Patricio and Joao Moutinho, Podence enjoyed his breakthrough at the Lisbon club, having impressed for Sporting B.

The wide man, who can also play behind the striker, was handed his senior Sporting debut in December 2014 and made 40 appearances before heading to Greece 18 months ago.

Since then, Podence has continued his development with Olympiacos and been a key player for the Greek side flying high during the first half of this season.

In his 27 appearances, Podence claimed five goals and five assists, including a strike against Tottenham Hotspur in a 2-2 Champions League draw in the group stages.

At international level, the winger has played for five different youth levels for Portugal, including the under-21s with Ruben Neves and Diogo Jota back in 2017.

He now reunites with the pair at Molineux, likewise his former Sporting team-mate Patricio, and joins training with Nuno’s squad ahead of next week’s Manchester United Premier League trip.
