Wolves smash transfer record with €15m deal for their man of the match against Liverpool

Helder Costa is staying at Molineux for the foreseeable future.

WOLVES HAVE SMASHED their transfer record to secure the services of Helder Costa on a permanent basis for a deal believed to be worth £13m (€15m).

The 23-year-old had been at Molineux on a loan deal from Benfica but the talented winger, who was man of the match in Wolves’s FA Cup win against Liverpool at Anfield on Saturday, has now agreed a four-and-a-half-year deal.

Manager Paul Lambert was keen to lock Costa in to a deal with a number of Premier League clubs believed to be interested in the winger.

The fee the club have paid for Costa, who has scored nine goals already this season, is almost double Wolves’s previous transfer record of £7m they spent on Ivan Cavaleiro.

Wolves were taken over by Fosun Group last year, whose chairman Guo Guangchang is worth a reported £4.1bn (€4.8bn).
