Wolverhampton Wanderers have announced the signing of Portugal international Joao Moutinho.

Moutinho has agreed a two-year deal to join Wolves from Monaco for an undisclosed fee.

"I'm very excited," Moutinho told Wolves TV. "It's a new experience with a great club. I want to help the team, the players and the club progress.

"My mentality is play every game to win and with my experience and quality I hope we can achieve our objectives."

The central midfielder was part of Portugal’s FIFA World Cup squad this summer. He also won UEFA Euro 2016.

He joins a growing band of Portuguese players at Molineux including Ivan Cavaleiro, Helder Costa, Diogo Jota, Ruben Neves, Rui Patricio and Ruben Vinagre.

The 31-year-old scored one goal and provided six assists in 33 Ligue 1 appearances for Monaco last season. He also played six UEFA Champions League matches.

He is Wolves’s sixth senior signing of the summer transfer window ahead of their return to the Premier League.

They kick off the new season at home to Everton on Saturday, 11 August.
