Wolverhampton Wanderers Confirm the Signing of Daniel Podence
The 24-year-old arrives at Molineux with high expectations, having impressed with Greek club Olympiakos, whom he joins from.
Last season saw Podence register five goals as well as set-up eight for his teammates, as his former side finished second in the Greek Super League.
He has continued that form into the first half of this season, with four goals from 21 appearances.
Podence will have to work hard to force his way into Nuno Espirito Santo’s side, due to the form of Adama Traore. The Spaniard has five goals and eight assists this season for Wolves.
What Was Said
Speaking to the official Wolves website, Podence said: “My individual goals are to play as much as possible, help the team with goals and assists and collectively, I’d like to qualify for the Champions League. That is a goal that’s within our reach, and I hope we can have a better season than last year.
“I’m very excited. It was always a childhood dream of mine to play in the Premier League and I look at this achievement as a dream come true.
“Wolves are a team with a big project, with ambitious goals to look forward to, where I’ll get to meet former teammates with whom I had the pleasure to play with in the past and I hope to be very successful here.
“The club’s evolution over the last years has been evident to people all over the world. Has been experiencing a visible growth.
“The first few times I’ve heard about Wolverhampton was from the time Silas was playing here, around the 2000’s I think, but now there’s not even a comparison to be made, it’s a much bigger club with very big aspirations.”
