Nuno Espirito Santo signs three-year Wolves extension after turning them into European-spot contenders

NUNO ESPIRITO SANTO has signed a new three-year deal to continue as Wolves boss.

The 46-year-old Portuguese manager will be in charge at Molineux until 2023 after extending his contract.

His side impressed last season ending the Premier League campaign in seventh place and reaching the Europa League quarter-finals.

And the former goalkeeper has done a great job in the Midlands – transforming Wolves from a mid-table Championship side to European-spot contenders in just three seasons.

He had one year left on his previous deal but is thought to have put pen to paper on a more lucrative offer.

The club's coach is understood to be in line for a considerable pay rise from his pre-existing £3million contract.

Nuno has been busy dipping his hands in the transfer market between seasons.

The ex-Porto manager has signed THREE players in the space of a week, including two from his old side.

The club smashed their transfer record to bring in £35m forward Fabio Silva from Porto with midfielder Vitinha arriving on loan and the club also welcoming defender Marcal from Lyon.

Ahead of his side's opening game against Sheffield United on Monday, Nuno told the club's website: "I feel good. Ready for it. Looking forward to it.

"Working really hard for it, because it’s a new cycle, no matter what you did before, it’s about what’s in front of us and this is what we think we should do. 

"Let’s prepare well, let’s challenge, do the way we do things, fight for it."

Chairman Jeff Shi added: "Nuno really is the special one to Wolves.

"He's brought us a clear identity, and all the work we have done to build our first team over the last three years started from the identity created in Nuno's head."
