Wolves confirm double capture as they gear up for Premier League

Published

on

Wolves have today announced that Benik Afobe and Willy Boly have agreed long-term contracts to stay at Molineux after successful loan spells.

French defender Boly joined 12 months ago from Porto, whilst Afobe returned to Wolves on a temporary basis in the winter window but both deals included options for making the moves permanent.

And, the club confirmed on their website this afternoon that they have triggered those options, with the players agreeing deals to remain at the club.

The centre-back was a hugely impressive figure for Wolves this season with his dominant displays earning him a place in the PFA Championship team of the year and he is expected to cost around £10m.

Meanwhile, Afobe, who will cost £12.5m, scored six goals in the second half of the season and boasts a very impressive minutes to goal ratio under Nuno Espirito Santo.

They will be joined by Diogo Jota, who signed a similar deal back in January and whilst there were question marks about his future in recent weeks, the statement added that he is another to have committed his long-term future to the West Midlands side.

The Verdict

This is great news for Wolves fans, particularly with Boly’s capture confirmed.

He was outstanding this season and looks as though he could easily handle the step up to the Premier League so it was vital he remained at the club.

Afobe is another good option too, and with the club reiterating the Jota deal is done, it’s been a very good productive day for the Black Country side.
