Pedro Neto has signed a contract extension with Wolves that will keep him at the club until 2027. The extension has been confirmed by the Premier League club on their official website, and is great news for the fans. The winger was named Wolves’ best player last year, and has proved himself to be a key figure in the team.
A number of clubs across the continent were interested in moving for him, but the contract renewal will fend off others for a while. The player joined Wolves in 2019, and is only 22 years old. He has been able to earn his first senior cap for Portugal while playing for Wolves, and is set to be one of the big stars of the future.
Pedro Neto renews contract with Wolves
Scott Sellars, Wolves technical director, said: “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.
“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.”
Pedro Neto recently returned from a lengthy knee injury that sidelined him for the majority of the 21/22 campaign. The winger has the backing of the board and the manager, as he takes his time to get back to previous levels.
“We spoke a lot about missing Pedro, so to see him back fit and happy, that’s the most important thing. There’s no pressure from us to be the player he was straight away – it’s going to take some time.
“He’s been out for a long time, but we’ve got no doubt he’ll be back to the Pedro we know, whether that’s towards the end of the season or the start of the next one, there’s no rush, we just want to make sure he has minutes and is developing.”
