Biography

Portuguese international Nelson Semedo left Barcelona for Wolverhampton in September 2020.

The right wing-back penned a deal that will keep him at Molineux until June 2023, with an option to extend it to June 2025.

The 26-year-old arrived with ten major honours to his name and three seasons at the Nou Camp, where he’s impressed in La Liga and the Champions League.

Having started his journey with Sintrense in the Portuguese third tier, Semedo’s big break came in 2012 when Benfica acquired his services and began developing an attacking, exciting full-back.

Having won two Portuguese league titles and three national cups, Semedo lured in Spanish giants Barcelona in 2017 and he repaid their faith during 124 appearances.

Two La Liga titles followed in the famous red and blue shirt, as did Copa del Rey and Supercopa de Espana honours.

After moving to Molineux, Semedo was an ever-present in the Wolves defence and scored his first goal against Manchester United, before representing Portugal at Euro 2020.
