Wolves have pulled off a major coup by securing the services of Portugal goalkeeper Rui Patricio from Sporting Lisbon.

The newly-promoted Premier League club announced Patricio had signed a four-year deal, subject to international clearance and he arrives on a free transfer having terminated his own contract.

The 30-year-old has won 70 caps for his country, helping Portugal win Euro 2016 and starting their World Cup opener against Spain on Friday.

Patricio came through Sporting’s youth system before making his debut in 2006.

He leaves Sporting having made 460 appearances, making him second on the Primeira Liga club’s all-time list.

Patricio becomes Nuno Espirito Santo’s second summer capture following the signing of Mexico forward Raul Jimenez.
