Wolves striker Fabio Silva has signed a contract extension at Molineux as he joins Anderlecht on loan, reliable journalist Steve Madeley has confirmed.
The Lowdown: Silva deals Anderlecht move
The 20-year-old has failed to set the world alight at Wolves to date, scoring just four goals in 62 appearances after arriving as a big-money signing back in 2020.
Because of that, Silva has been loaned out to Anderlecht for the 2022/23 season, as he looks to earn regular playing time and return to Wanderers a better player.
Another key update has also emerged regarding the striker, however, with Wolves showing they do still hold faith in his long-term potential.
The Latest: Madeley confirms new deal
Taking to Twitter on Monday, Madeley confirmed in three words that Silva had signed a new deal at the club while discussing the Anderlecht switch:
“New contract signed.”
The Verdict: Good experience for youngster
There is no doubt that Silva has been hugely disappointing to date, especially given his £35million price tag, but this loan move could do him the world of good.
The hope is that Silva thrives at Anderlecht, realises his potential and returns to Wanderers a far more confident and rounded player. At 20, he certainly still has time on his side.
