Wolves secure Jose loan signing

Wolves have completed the loan signing of Brazilian striker Willian Jose from Real Sociedad, subject to a work permit and international clearance.

The 29-year-old moves to Molineux on loan for the remainder of the 2020/21 season, with Wolves holding an option to make the move permanent in the summer.

Jose has been with Sociedad since 2016, scoring 62 times in 170 appearances for the La Liga side, but now provides a fresh option in attack for Nuno Espirito Santo.

The striker was on target for the Spanish side as recently as Wednesday evening, when his two goals helped defeat Cordoba 2-0 in the Copa Del Rey – two of his six goals this campaign.

After starting his career in his home continent, in Brazil and then Uruguay, Jose showed his potential during a series of loan moves to Europe, including to Real Madrid and Real Zaragoza, before moving to Sociedad permanently.

Now primed to grace the Premier League for the first time in his career, Jose will be handed the number 12 shirt upon his arrival in the West Midlands, but is not expected to be available for Wednesday’s Premier League clash at Chelsea.
