Lots of Wolves fans have been left buzzing over some news that has emerged on Joao Moutinho.
As per Ekrem Konur, the Midlands club are now planning to give the central midfield player a one-year extension to his contract.
Should Wolves start Moutinho?
Moutinho has been a key player for the Molineux faithful over the years, having played in every single game so far this season, and notched up a total of 142 appearances over all competitions across the last four consecutive campaigns, scoring three goals and making a further 22 assists (Transfermarkt).
The 34-year-old has so much experience and is also key in the dressing room, and so keeping a character like him at the club for another year is a wise decision.
Wolves fans on Moutinho news
These WWFC supporters buzzed as the news on Moutinho was shared on Twitter, with one Wanderer even going as far as to claim that the Portugal international is a ‘class’ player:
“Like a fine wine”
“I’m all for this”
“He deserves it, been class for us, need to invest in a younger midfielder in January though”
“Definitely needed for quality squad depth”
“Worth it for experience and status, having someone like him about can only make us more desirable to the younger Portuguese players that come join.”
The guy leads by example. Looks after himself, still hungry and competitive. The perfect role model and General for our young staff to aspire to. Earned and worth every penny of a new deal. I’d be proud for JM28 to retire as a Wolf”
