Pedro Neto has signed a new long-term contract at Wolverhampton Wanderers with his deal now set to expire in 2027.
Neto has only just returned to action after an arduous 330-day injury layoff. Prior to that blow, he won the club’s Player of the Season award following a brilliant 2020/21 campaign, where he managed five goals and six assists in the Premier League.
This form had seen him linked with the likes of Tottenham, Juventus, and Liverpool. However, for the time being, he seems set to remain at Molineux, with Wolves confirming he had penned fresh terms on Wednesday.
Scott Sellars, the club’s technical director, told the club’s website:
“It’s great news for the football club and Pedro. It’s a deserved reward for him, he’s returned from injury and put in a lot of hard work to get back, so it’s good for all parties.
“Pedro came as a young player with a lot of potentials and quickly proved the club had signed a top young talent. He’s fulfilled that potential, become a full international, and an established Premier League player – people have spoken globally about his performances for Wolves.
“It’s a no-brainer for the club to retain its talent and hopefully it was a no-brainer for Pedro to stay longer and work hard in an environment he’s comfortable and happy in. Pedro deserves it and we’re really happy.”
