Silva joined the club in January, after leaving Anderlecht.

Silva had been doing well there and had scored goals and played regularly. However, Wolves took the decision to facilitate a new move for him for footballing reasons.

Sporting director Matt Hobbs said of the decision: “We were concerned if they (Anderlecht) don’t progress in certain competitions, they won’t have many fixtures with how their system works, and having an international tournament in the summer, it was important Fabio plays regularly.”

So far, Silva has made 11 appearances for PSV and scored four goals. In total this season, he’s got 15 across his two loan spells.

He is starting to find his feet, and the youngster has been speaking about his time at the club so far.

Silva loves working with Ruud van Nistelrooy who, of course, was a top striker in his playing days.

Interestingly, Silva has said that he would be open to extending his loan deal

He told Voetbal International (via soccernews.nl): “If it’s up to me, I’ll definitely stay here for another season because I think it’s good for my development,” Silva explained.

“The last goal we scored against Cambuur, with Xavi, Anwar and me, showed how much fun we have together, I would like to continue that. But like I said, it’s not always up to me. Moreover, my focus must first be fully on the title race and the cup tournament. I want to win trophies here and I believe we can still become champions.”

Fabio Silva wanting to continue PSV loan is interesting given Julen Lopetegui supposedly wants him back at Wolves

It is interesting to hear Silva speaking about wanting to continue at PSV.

He’s clearly really enjoying himself there, and seemingly feels working with van Nistelrooy is really helping his development.

Certainly, a conversation will be had this summer.

Hobbs claimed previously that Lopetegui has been kept informed about Silva’s progress.

He stated that the manager was keen to bring him back into the fold for pre-season.

It might be that Silva will be given more chances in Wolves’ starting XI next term.
