Goalkeeper Jose Sa’s move from Olympiacos to Wolves has now been confirmed.

The Athletic claim that Sa will cost Wolves £6.8 million and he comes in to replace Rui Patricio.

They also report he will wear the number one shirt, with the full blessing of Carl Ikeme, the last man to wear it.

Sa also took to Instagram after the move was confirmed to say goodbye to his old club and look forward to the ‘new chapter’ in his career at Molineux.

Sa has been called up by Portugal in the past – including at the 2019 Nations League – but is yet to get a cap.

He does have Champions League and Europa League experience from his time in Greece.

 

That means he’s got decent pedigree and has every chance of taking on the mantle from Patricio.

Adjusting to English football won’t be easy, but Scott Sellars has already pointed out the attributes Sa has which he hopes will make him a good addition.

John Ruddy will expect to play in goal at Crewe tomorrow but it shouldn’t be too long before Sa makes his debut in pre-season.

He has reportedly been in Wolverhampton since Wednesday and will likely be keen to get cracking now his future is finally sorted.

Jorge Mendes is Sa’s representative and has had a big role in getting the deal done, which won’t come as a huge surprise.
