Nelson Semedo becomes the latest Portuguese superstar to join Wolves. He becomes the 11th Portuguese player in the Wolves line-up. Semedo spent three season in Catalonia, winning two La Liga titles.

Semedo had a mixed bag of fortunes with Barcelona. He spent the entire three years fighting with Sergi Roberto for the right back berth. He was disappointing in Barcelona’s 8-2 and 4-0 defeats to Bayern Munich and Liverpool respectively.

However, the pacey full back was still a crucial member of the Barcelona side that won back-to-back La Liga titles. He’s also won the Copa del Rey and the Spanish Super Cup.

The full back, still only 26 year’s old, adds a wealth of experience to a growing Wolves side. He joins international team mates such as Rui Patricio, Ruben Neves, Joao Moutinho and Daniel Podence.

Wolves CEO Jeff Shi was delighted to announce the signing.

“‘Progressive at heart’ is one of our core values at Wolves. For a member of staff, for a player, for the whole club, we are all making great efforts to progress continuously.

“It’s isn’t often that we have the opportunity to sign a world-class player from a world-class club. Nelson’s signing shows we will never stop progressing and we are still hungry and humble in our heart.”

Nelson Semedo was excited to join the Wolves family: “I’m very excited to be here. It’s a very good team. To play in the Premier League is a dream from me too. So, I’m very excited to begin, to meet my teammates and start training,” he said.

“I chose Wolves because it’s a very good team that plays very good football. Last year they did a very good season and it’s a very important team in England, in also Europe. I hope this year we can do very good things.

“Coach Nuno is a very good coach. He did very good things here in Wolves and in other teams too. For sure I’m going to learn a lot from him.” Semedo added

“The team did very good things the last three years. I’m ambitious and I hope this year we can do very good things, reach the top six and, if it’s possible, do something special.
