Wolves: Ruben Vinagre set to join Sporting Lisbon permanently

Wolves: Ruben Vinagre set to join Sporting Lisbon permanently -Wolves Transfer Rumours

Ruben Vinagre’s loan move from Wolves to Sporting Lisbon is to become permanent, according to a fresh report.

The Lowdown: Vinagre out on loan

The 22-year-old joined the Portuguese champions on a temporary basis last summer, with Bruno Lage seemingly not considering the left-back part of his plans.

Vinagre has only featured sparingly for Sporting this season to date (albeit partly due to injury), only making six Primeira Liga starts and also appearing twice in the Champions League.

However, it now looks as though the youngster has played his final game for Wolves, in light of a significant development from his native Portugal.

The Latest: Sporting move to be made permanent

Speaking to A Bola [via Sport Witness], Sporting manager Ruben Amorim confirmed that Vinagre’s move had become permanent.

The 37-year-old said of the defender: “He’s part of our project. We have young players we want to bet on. We really believe in Ruben. The situation was already thought of at the beginning of the season, but the purchase is now official. He had an injury that limited him.”

Sporting will reportedly pay €10m (£8.33m) for Vinagre’s services, with some reports also suggesting that Wolves could possibly receive 50% of a future sell-on fee, potentially pushing the Old Gold’s total income from the deal into eight figures.

The Verdict: Good move for Vinagre

The move makes perfect sense for Vinagre, allowing him to flourish at a club where he is clearly valued and kick on further in his career by settling permanently in Lisbon.

The left-back did his best for Wolves, scoring three times in 70 appearances, but the emergence of Rayan Ait-Nouri had pushed him down the pecking order at Molineux.

Assuming it goes through, it is a good piece of business by Wanderers, with Lage now hopefully able to use the funds from the sale towards new signings in the summer transfer window.
