Joao Moutinho is to move from AS Monaco to Wolverhampton Wanderers in a two-year deal. Wolves reportedly paid five million pounds for the experienced Portuguese midfielder.
The 31-year-old is the third most-capped player in his country’s history with 113 international appearances. He joins a number of Portuguese players already at Wolves, including Diogo Jota, Ruben Neves and recent signee, goalkeeper Rui Patricio.
The midfielder made three appearances during the recent World Cup in Russia. He started his career at Sporting Lisbon before joining Porto in 2010, winning the top division title in 2011, 2012 and 2013.
Moutinho arrived at Monaco in 2013 and went on to play over 200 games for the French club, helping them win the Ligue 1 crown in 2017.
