The team have games coming up against Deportivo Alaves, Levante and Besiktas, before they head to Portugal to take on Sporting CP and SC Farense.

The signing of Collins provided a brief moment of euphoria for many Wolves fans.

The had been clamour for a new centre-back addition for some time.

And in Collins, the club have seemingly signed a young player with big potential.

The Express & Star reported that he looked impressive in training over the weekend.

Now the publication has spoken to Bruno Lage’s fitness coach Cachada, and he was provided some more information regarding how he has settled in.

He said: “First of all, he’s a humble kid. It’s not difficult for him to settle in this group because it’s amazing, a top group. For him to settle here is not a surprise and he’s settled quite well.

“He’s got to know each player and tried to fit in. With time he will fit well. Lets progress and build a unit. From there we’ll find his role and his voice. It’s a good thing.

“He’s shy outside of the pitch. When the ball starts rolling he becomes his character and finds his voice.

“Step by step he’ll talk a bit more and he’ll be fine.

“He has that (leadership qualities). He’s started slowly because he wants to know his teammates, but with time he will become more open and his character will come through.”

Nathan Collins will settle at Wolves in no time

It sounds as though Collins has had a good first week out in Alicante with his new teammates.

There is a real team spirit in that dressing room, and he will be out of his shell in no time.

He’s only been there a week and it does already sound as though he is getting comfortable.

With five matches now to come for Wolves, he’ll no doubt gain a good understanding with his teammates ahead of that first game against Leeds United.
