Wolves sign Porto midfielder Ruben Neves for club record fee
Wolverhampton Wanderers have broken their transfer record to sign midfielder Ruben Neves from Porto, also confirming a loan deal for defender Willy Boly from the same club.
Neves has signed a five-year deal, and although Wolves did not confirm the size of the fee they said it was a club record, with reports putting it at around £15 million.
The midfielder, who links up again with former manager Nuno Espirito Santo, has been joined at Molineux by Boly, who has signed a season-long loan deal.
"I'm very excited to play at this club," Neves told the club's official website. "It is a very big club and I hope to help the team to win their goals.
"I have always wanted to play in England and we have a good team. I think we can do good things this season."
Nuno said: "Ruben is a very good player who can bring new things to our squad.
"I know him well. He was very pleased to come here, and it's a good challenge for him."
Wolves are also close to signing former Norwich goalkeeper John Ruddy on a free transfer after Carl Ikeme's leukaemia diagnosis.
Ikeme, 31, is a popular member of the dressing room and will start treatment immediately.
