Wolves sign Portugal keeper from Sporting

Wolverhampton Wanderers have completed the signing of Portugal goalkeeper Rui Patricio from Sporting Lisbon.

The 30-year-old stopper has signed a four-year deal at Molineux, the Premier League newcomers have announced.

Patricio, who featured in Portugal’s 3-3 draw with Spain at the World Cup, has won 70 caps for his country.

Previous reports suggest that Wolves did not have to pay a transfer fee to sign the goalkeeper, with Patricio cancelling his contract due to a dispute with his former employers.

Patricio is expected to compete with John Ruddy for first-team football at Wolves.
