Wolverhampton Wanderers have been superb defensively this season, having conceded the least amount of goals so far in the Championship (20).
Nuno Espirito Santo’s team have been praised hugely for the goal-scoring efforts of some of their star attackers this season, but it’s the defenders that have saved the side on multiple occasions this season.
The unnoticed efforts of the Wolves back-three is often the case, with goals becoming the highlight in any game.
But one man who’s been underrated in his time at Molineux is Wolves’ defender Willy Boly, the centre-half has been one of the standout player’s with no striker yet to get the better of the powerhouse.
However, with him only at Wolves in a loan deal from Portuguese club FC Porto, Nuno Santo will be keen to tie him down to a permanent deal at the club.
Although, it looks like this will have to wait until the summer. As Wolves journalist Tim Spiers (@tim_spiers_star) took to his personal Twitter account, to state that the permanent signing of the defender is likely to be completed at the end of the season.

Following the news, fans were quick to hurry up the process, after the defender has been viewed as one of the key player’s in the squad.
So without further ado, here’s a look at exactly what supporters made of the update…
Boly and Jota are key signings as both comfortably good enough to make the step up. Boly is the best centre half I’ve seen at #wwfc in 30yrs

Great stuff, still believe Boly to be the best signing we've made and getting his permanent signature is a must. As for not rushing to sign any more players…sensible! We don't need to be integrating too many more and upsetting the apple cart at this stage. A RB and that'll do.

This flies in the face of all the recent ‘rumours’. Hope you’re right on this one, mate.

THE key player this season for me. Has been an absolute colossus in defence for Wolves. Best defender I have seen at Molineux in a long time.

Great news, he is the most important out of all the loan players to get signed permanent!!

Definitely need to sign him, he's been immense for us and we certainly missed him when he's not played
