Wolves have Neto-ed a real star in Pedro – he can go to the top, says Ruddy

Wolves prospect Pedro Neto has been told he is going right to the top of the game and will stay there. The 19-year-old forward looks set to win more game time with Diogo Jota ruled out of at least the next two games and Patrick Cutrone joining Fiorentina. Neto scored his first Premier League goal in the 2-1 defeat at Watford on New Year’s Day after being denied by VAR in the 1-0 loss at Liverpool. The Portuguese youngster has started the last three games and he seems certain to be knocking on the door again when Wolves host Newcastle…

Cutrone’s exit from Wolves to Fiorentina confirmed with Nuno’s reaction

Wolves have confirmed Patrick Cutrone’s exit to Fiorentina on an 18-month loan with a view to a permanent deal. There is a loan fee and an option for the Serie A club to buy the 22-year-old striker for around £15.3m, meaning Wolves will recoup their £16m outlay they paid AC Milan in July. The length of the loan is to allow Fiorentina to spread the cost of the package over a longer period. Cutrone has only started once in the last 15 games as he struggled to force his way into Nuno Espirito Santo’s starting XI, and the head coach…

Nuno: Jota’s absence heightens Wolves’ need to strengthen attack

Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo admits Diogo Jota’s injury has stepped up the need to strengthen his attack this month. Patrick Cutrone’s transfer to Fiorentina is going through and Wolves have lost Jota, certainly for the next two games. Jota’s leg injury is due to be scanned again next week, meaning he will definitely miss Saturday’s visit of Newcastle and the FA Cup third round replay away to Manchester United on Wednesday. Asked if injuries can alter transfer plans, Nuno said: “Of course. We cannot avoid the circumstances that happen. “We have versatile players who can help us, but we…

Gibbs-White back for Wolves – but Jota faces further scan

Morgan Gibbs-White has returned to full training with Wolves – but Diogo Jota will miss Saturday’s visit of Newcastle. Gibbs-White has missed the last 17 games with a back injury that has kept him out since October 24 against Slovan Bratislava. But the 19-year-old midfielder is fit and available, possibly to be involved at the weekend. “The good thing is Morgan is back. He’s already integrated into the training sessions so that’s good,” said head coach Nuno Espirito Santo. Jota missed the 0-0 draw against Manchester United in the FA Cup after suffering a ‘strong impact’ on his leg after…
