Former Wolves forward Diogo Jota has congratulated his international teammate Pedro Neto on extending his Molineux contract.
Jota is of course now a Liverpool player but did play alongside Neto briefly at Wolves before departing to go to Anfield.
Neto has penned a deal which will keep him at Molineux until 2027 and posted on Instagram to celebrate the news.
Jota was in the comments, posting a message of congratulations to the talented young forward.
Scott Sellars, Wolves technical director, told the club 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 potential 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.”
Neto can go on and become a real key player for Portugal at Wolves where he will hope to establish himself as someone who plays European football on a regular basis too.
The winger’s first priority is to get back to full fitness and show the form he displayed before his injury, with goals and assists.
This is deserved reward for his hard work but now he has to keep pushing on to the next level, with the club hopefully matching his ambition.
