Wolves Set to Announce Signing of Atletico Madrid Midfielder on Season-Long Loan
Wolves are reportedly set to announce the signing of Atletico Madrid's Diogo Jota on a season-long loan imminently, adding to the influx of foreign players the club have managed to attract this summer.
The club have already confirmed the signing of Ruben Neves this summer, and are believed to be on the verge of signing his former teammate Diogo Jota on a loan deal from Atletico Madrid.
Jota spent last season with FC Porto as Diego Simeone looked to build up the youngster's playing experience. After an impressive campaign in Portugal, the 20-year-old will be looking to make as much of an impression in the Championship as he did last term - having completed his medical ahead of Wolves' friendly against Shrewsbury.

According to former Wolves correspondent for the Express and Star, Tim Nash, the club have already sorted their deal with Jota and are preparing to announce the signing - with the midfielder expected to make his debut in the club's upcoming friendly.
The club have already introduced six new faces into their side this summer, and are expected to soon confirm the signing of Monaco defender Ruben Vinagre on a season-long loan after Jota, with the option for the French champions to recall him in January.

Wolves are undergoing a huge influx of foreign players with a lot of thanks to the influence of Jorge Mendes. The Portuguese super agent was hired as a scout/agent for the club and has since proven a wonderful acquisition, attracting a lot of quality to the Midlands.
