It has not been an easy time for Silva over the past couple of years.

Wolves officials decided to send him out on loan, and the hope is that he will be getting regular minutes and be able to score a few goals.

Silva got off to a great start at the weekend.

The 20-year-old managed to score his first goal for the club in their first league game against Oostende.

It was a fine finish from the youngster, who lashed his effort into the far corner to seal the game late on.

It took the £35 million man just seven minutes to open his account.

Speaking to HLN after the game, he said (via Shropshire Star): “I think I can do great things at this club. I came here to develop and help the team conquer good things this year.

“I think I have a good chance to do brilliant things this year, but I think day by day. If you think too much in the future you won’t focus on the present, which is the most important thing for you and the team.”

After scoring against Oostende, Silva took to Instagram to mark the occasion. He wrote ‘What a way to start the purple journey’.

Some Wolves stars commented their support, including Ki-Jana Hoever and Luke Cundle, who both left emojis.

Fabio Silva makes perfect start at Anderlecht, and this loan could be the making of him

Silva scoring just seven minutes into his debut for Anderlecht was the absolutely ideal start.

He should be feeling very confident after marking his arrival with such a well taken goal.

He knows this is a great chance for him to develop, and potentially he could well do brilliant things as he himself suggests.

The main thing is that he plays as much as possible.

That was his issue last season, with Bruno Lage putting his faith in Raul Jimenez at almost every turn.

He simply needs to experience senior football week in week out, and hopefully this time next year he will be ready to take the Premier League by storm.
