Steve Bull reacts to Wolves signing Matheus Cunha

Molineux legend Steve Bull has expressed his happiness at Wolves completing an early deal for Matheus Cunha.

The star became the first signing of the Julen Lopetegui era, joining from Atletico Madrid.

He has joined on loan, but Wolves will pay the Spanish side around £43 million next summer to turn the move permanent.

Cunha is expected to make his debut for Wolves against Aston Villa on January 4.

Wolves were in talks with Atleti for a couple of weeks before getting the deal done.

It is a major coup for the club, especially considering Wolves’ league position.

It can be argued that Cunha may not have made the move if not for Lopetegui, who has seen Cunha play several times before in Spain.

Wolves’ record scorer Bull has now given his take, and he’s praised the owners for backing the new head coach before the transfer window has even opened.

He said (Express & Star): “We’re normally the last team to bring anyone in, so this news will be good for the club and the fans.

“Wolves are looking to attract the players that Julen Lopetegui wants and it’s a good sign that they’re beating other clubs to a key signing early on.

“The owners are putting their money where their mouth is and we need that quality, rather than quantity.

“We need that bit of class to force their way into the side and get Wolves out of this position.”

It is expected that Wolves will be quite busy next month.

A new central defender should arrive, and it could be that another striker and a right-back also follow.

It has been refreshing to see Wolves act so swiftly over Cunha.

Talks were only first reported a few weeks ago and is already a Wolves player.

To have got the deal done, and ahead of other clubs, before the transfer window has even opened is a really good sign.

Lopetegui must have played a really big part in his acquisition, and that bodes well for the coming weeks.

Wanderers simply have to get their recruitment right in January. Lopetegui has already shown his quality as a manager in just a few weeks, it’s important his wishes are granted.
