Wolverhampton Wanderers are reportedly planning to offer Joao Moutinho a contract extension.
Journalist Ekrem Konur claimed yesterday on Twitter that the club are looking to offer the Portuguese maestro another year at Molineux.
His current contract expires at the end of the season.
Moutinho recently turned 35, making him one of the oldest players in the Premier League.
Despite his advancing years, he remains a key player for Wolves and has so far featured heavily under Bruno Lage in 2021/22.
As was the case under Nuno Espirito Santo.
To date he has made 142 appearances for the club, which is amazing considering he only joined in 2018.
The £5 million signing (BBC Sport) has played a lot of football, and some have wondered how much he has left in the tank.
News of a potential contract extension has reached some Wolves fans on social media.
The idea of Moutinho signing on for another year appears to have divided some, although quite a few do see the benefit of keeping him around, even if he was to play less.
At the end of the day, Moutinho has had an amazing career and no doubt has plenty of pearls of wisdom to pass on.
There is obviously a strong Portuguese influence at the club and having Moutinho around is probably ideal for those hailing from the country.
He’s started this season very well and is as fit as a fiddle best player iv ever seen in a wolves shirt

I thought he was going to leave in the summer but couldn’t get anyone to pay as much. Do we really think he will be playing at this level in a couple of years? How long is left on his contract?

Maybe a year only. Has the quality but the age is showing. Need to sign a player that can protect him and do his running for him, because Neves and Dedonker can’t.

Moutinho is only just 35, CR7 is 37 in feb and has just been given a 2 year deal. Arguably CR7’s position requires more explosive pace. I’d say with his fitness he has 2 – 3 years left. In the early 2000s Gary McAllister played for Liverpool at 37, fitness has moved on since then

Worth it for experience and status, having someone like him about can only make us more desirable to the younger Portuguese players that come join.

He deserves it, been class for us, need to invest in a younger midfielder in January though

Still good enough to dictate a midfield for 30 mins next season an his experience is vital
