Vitinha scores for Porto... against Rui Patricio

Wolverhampton Wanderers were not in action last night, but two players that did turn out in Old Gold last term were.

Portuguese giants FC Porto were in action against AS Roma, with the game finishing 1-1.

Vitinha did not start the game, but was introduced for five minutes at the end.

That was all he needed to make his mark.

The midfielder made an instant impact, exchanging passes with a teammate on the edge of the penalty area before finishing low and firmly past Rui Patricio in the Roma goal.

Vitinha, of course, got to know Patricio very well last season at Molineux during his loan spell.

It remains to be seen if Wolves will make a move to sign Vitinha on a permanent basis.

The club recently had the chance to land him for £17 million. But the buy option expired.

There is only a month remaining in the transfer window.

It was reported a few weeks ago by The Athletic that Wolves were looking at other options on the market.

Vitinha may prove Wolves regret

Vitinha found minutes very hard to come by during his spell at Wolves.

As a result, The Athletic report that club officials were not fully convinced by the player, which is why they sought an extension on the £17 million buy option.

But the fact that the club still didn’t move for Vitinha would perhaps suggest a move is now unlikely.

Vitinha’s goal against Roma was really well taken. He is clearly a really talented player – as he often showed for the Portugal U21s last term – and could well end up a regret for Wolves.
