Francisco Trincão has been pictured wearing Wolves’ new kit for the first time.
Wolves confirmed Trincão’s signing following a swiftly conducted loan negotiation with Barcelona.
He is Wolves’ most exciting signing of the summer, and hopefully he will not be the last.
He is an upgrade in terms of squad depth for Wolves, and with a packed fixture schedule, he is likely to play more games than he misses in his maiden season in English football.
Wolves have also confirmed Trincão will wear the squad number 11.
His ability to get fans off their seats is an important trait, and he’ll hope to take on some of the goalscoring burden.
He has already been in training with his new teammates and now we’ve seen him in the home shirt.
He could play in Wolves’ first pre-season game on Saturday at Crewe.
Rui Patricio was Wolves’ previous number 11 of course.
He avoided number one out of respect for Carl Ikeme and took the unusual step of plumping for 11.
But Trincao is a far more traditional wearer of the shirt, as a tricky forward. It’s hard to think of another goalkeeper wearing 11.
It’s also been worn by the likes of Jordan Graham, Kevin McDonald and Stephen Ward for Wolves.
