Silva made 32 appearances for the Belgian giants, and scored 11 goals.

The plan had been for him to spend the whole season with the club.

But Wolves have decided to facilitate a new move for him.

Recently, there were claims that Silva had lost motivation at the club, and there were also reports there had been a rift with head coach Brian Riemer.

Riemer, though, has denied those claims.

He said (HLN): “Nothing happened between us. We spoke last night for twenty minutes. He didn’t do anything wrong. I read an article that there was a fight between us. That’s a total lie. It’s his decision to leave.

“It is absolutely not the case that Anderlecht, or I personally, don’t want him anymore. It’s about his personal ambitions. You have to ask him what the concrete reason is for his departure. He liked being here and I also think he suited our football.”

Silva will now be making a move to PSV and hope to become a regular in their side and score more goals.

The club were in action against Vitesse yesterday, and Silva was spotted at the Philips Stadion.

An image was uploaded on Twitter by @Vodskaya and shared by journalist Fabrizio Romano.

@Vodskaya also grabbed a picture with the player.

Romano has said that a deal has been completed. He will now spend the next six months at the club.

One would imagine PSV will be giving official confirmation of Silva’s move imminently.

A new chapter for Fabio Silva, who must prove himself again at PSV

So Silva is ready for a fresh move, and Wolves officials will be hoping he can have a similar level of success to what he had a Anderlecht.

It sounds as though the player’s desires were the driving factor behind this move.

Whatever Silva’s reasons are for wanting out of Anderlecht, he must now prove himself at PSV.

The standard is a little higher than the Belgian league, and he will be coming up against better quality players.

Hopefully he’ll be able to play regularly and score some more goals.

In an ideal world, Silva will be returning to Wolves in the summer having had two really productive spells.
