Jota makes Liverpool switch

Wolves can confirm that Diogo Jota has moved to Premier League champions Liverpool for an undisclosed fee.

The transfer marks the end of the Portuguese forward’s three-year stint with the club, having played an important role in bringing top-flight football back to Molineux.

Since joining Wolves at the start of the Championship-winning 2017/18 season on loan from Atletico Madrid, Jota made more than 130 appearances in gold and black, being named top scorer for the club as Nuno Espirito Santo’s side earned promotion to the Premier League.

In his two years as a permanent member of the pack, Jota helped the team achieve successive seventh placed league finishes, as well as excelling in the Europa League, scoring nine goals as Wolves reached the quarter-finals of European competition for the first time since 1972.

His back-to-back hat-tricks against Besiktas and Espanyol at Molineux saw the 23-year-old became the first Wolves player to ever achieve the feat, while his 13-minute trio against the Turkish side was the club’s quickest in Europe.

Everyone at Wolves would like thank Diogo for his efforts in old gold and wish him the best of luck for his future.
