Wolverhampton Wanderers have confirmed the signing of defender Roderick Miranda on the club’s official website.

Roderick Miranda joins Wolves on a permanent transfer after a fee was agreed with Rio Ave.

Wolves have paid an undisclosed fee to prise Roderick Miranda away from the Portuguese top flight, where he was plying his trade for Rio Ave.

The 26-year-old has put pen to paper on a four year deal with the West Midlands outfit, committing his future until summer 2021.

The former Portugal under-20 international brings experience from playing in three countries to the table.

The towering 6’4” centre half has played for Portuguese giants Benfica, Swiss outfit Servette, Spanish La Liga side Deportivo La Coruna and Rio Ave in his career.

Nuno Espirito Santo signed Miranda in 2013 for Rio Ave and has now reunited with him at Wolves.

Miranda joins the ever-growing Portuguese contingent at Wolves.

Super-agent Jorge Mendes handles the club’s transfer activity; Nuno Espirito Santo has recently been named as the new manager and has drafted in three Portuguese backroom staff members; and Miranda becomes the fourth Portuguese player in the Wolves side, joining Helder Costa, Ivan Cavaleiro and Silvio in gold and black.

Roderick Miranda becomes the second signing of the summer transfer window for Wolverhampton Wanderers after fellow centre half Ryan Bennett joined on a free transfer following his release by Norwich City.
