Wolves announce the signing of Barcelona right-back Nelson Semedo for £29M
Wolves have announce the signing of Portugal international Nelson Semedo from Barcelona for a fee of around £29m.
The 26-year old right back is a direct replacement for Matt Doherty who moved to Spurs this summer.
On the new signing, Wolves executive chairman Jeff Shi said: “‘Progressive at heart’ is one of our core values at Wolves. For a member of staff, for a player, for the whole club, we are all making great efforts to progress continuously.
“It’s isn’t often that we have the opportunity to sign a world-class player from a world-class club. Nelson’s signing shows we will never stop progressing and we are still hungry and humble in our heart.”
When asked why he chose Wolves, Semedo told the club's website, “I chose Wolves because it’s a very good team that plays very good football. Last year they did a very good season and it’s a very important team in England, in also Europe. I hope this year we can do very good things.
“Coach Nuno is a very good coach. He did very good things here in Wolves, and in other teams too. For sure I’m going to learn a lot from him.”
