Wolverhampton Wanderers confirmed the signing of Joao Moutinho on Tuesday.

Wolves paid £5 million to pluck the 31-year-old from Monaco, according to BBC Sport. The midfielder signed a two-year contract in the Black Country.

Moutinho is now the eighth Portuguese in the senior setup at Wolves as the revolution overseen by compatriot Nuno Espirito Santo and advised by super-agent Jorge Mendes steamrolls its way into top-flight football.

Moutinho, who has also represented Sporting CP and FC Porto, will likely partner with 21-year-old Ruben Neves in central midfield and will be reunited with fellow international Rui Patricio.

Wolves were runaway winners in the Championship last season, concluding the term with a nine-point cushion. They will begin their Premier League season with a visit from Everton on August 11.
