Wolves announced the signings of Belgian international Leander Dendoncker and youngster John Kitolano on deadline day to complete a summer of spending by the Premier League new boys, and fans on Twitter were claiming it was the club’s best ever transfer window.
With 11 players coming into the club in total, excluding Benik Afobe who was bought and immediately loaned out to Stoke, there will no doubt be a period where the new signings take time to settle but it is clear that the club have brought in top quality talent.
Boss Nuno Espirito Santo’s agent Jorge Mendes aided the club for the second transfer window in a row and helped to secure the services of experienced Portugal internationals Rui Patricio and Joao Moutinho.
Crucially, the club also managed to tie up permanent deals for former loanees Willy Boly, Diogo Jota and Leo Bonatini who were key in securing promotion back to the Premier League last season. They also smashed their transfer record with the £18m capture of winger Adama Traore from Middlesbrough.
Wolves begin their Premier League campaign at home to Everton and fans will be hoping they can get off to a good start against another club who had an impressive transfer window. Check out the best reactions from Wolves fans to their summer dealings below.
Class transfer window but big mistake letting Douglas go with no replacement #wwfc
