Wolves transfer news: Rui Patricio compensation finally agreed with Sporting

Wolves have finally reached agreement with Sporting CP for goalkeeper Rui Patricio.

The Portuguese international arrived in the summer after cancelling his contract with the Primeira Liga giants following a dispute with the club.

A club statement read: “Wolves have reached an agreement that will see Sporting Clube de Portugal receive a fee of €18m for the transfer of goalkeeper Rui Patricio.

“Wolves now consider the matter finalised and will make no further comment.”

Patricio has kept four clean sheets as Wolves have enjoyed a strong start to the Premier League season.
