Wolves sporting director Matt Hobbs has revealed new signing Pablo Sarabia turned down several other lucrative offers in favour of coming to Molineux.
The club confirmed the Spaniard’s arrival yesterday ahead of the FA Cup replay with Liverpool.
He has become the club’s third addition of the window after Matheus Cunha and Mario Lemina.
Sarabia’s move to Wolves is definitely eye-catching.
Mainly because Wolves only spent £4.5 million to bring him in from Paris Saint-Germain.

Sarabia is an experienced player, who has a proven track record in goalscoring and assisting. The club feel he could really help the team to become better in the final third.
Hobbs has been speaking about Wolves’ latest acquisition to the official website.
He has revealed that Sarabia was a wanted man before agreeing to come to Molineux.
He said: “The player has shown right from the start his desire to come here. He’s turned down other offers, more lucrative offers, because he wanted to team up again with the manager. We’re really happy to have him and he’s really happy to be here.”
Sarabia, who was in attendance at Molineux last night, has the capacity to play out wide or in behind the main striker.
His arrival perhaps casts further doubt on the future of Goncalo Guedes.
The winger was not included in the matchday squad for the second game running last night by Lopetegui.
The Julen Lopetegui pull is real, and Pablo Sarabia is a cracking signing as Matt Hobbs says star turned down lucrative offers
Wolves might not have been able to bring Sarabia to Molineux without Lopetegui at the helm.
Clearly, he has a strong pull thanks to his achievements in the game so far.
It really is a brilliant bit of business from Wolves to sign Sarabia for just £4.5 million.
This is a player in his prime and determined to make an impact having been reduced to a bench role at PSG following a great season on loan at Sporting CP.
It’s great to see players turning down other more lucrative opportunities to become a part of the project at Molineux.
