Real Madrid defender Jesus Vallejo joined Wolves on a season-long loan for the 2019/20 season.
The 22-year-old became Wolves’ first signing of the 2019 summer transfer window, on the back of captaining Spain to under-21 European Championship glory.
The loan spell with Wolves is Vallejo’s third away from the Bernabeu, where he moved in 2015 from Real Zaragoza.
Following a temporary return to his former club, the youngster experienced the Bundesliga with Eintracht Frankfurt, playing regularly during the 2016/17 campaign.
Vallejo made seven of his 19 Madrid appearances in 2018/19 and recovered from injury to net his first La Liga goal against Villarreal in May.
Internationally, the defender has played for four levels of Spanish youth sides, including 22 times for the under-21s, who he currently captains.
Vallejo was already familiar with Wolves’ Jonny Otto, after the pair played together on seven occasions for Spain’s under-21s in the past.
The defender’s debut for his new club came against FC Pyunik in the Europa League, as Wolves won 4-0 at Molineux.
