Reports in Greece claim that Jose Sa’s move to Wolves is in its final stages.

Sportime report that there’s only the final touches to sort and shares details on the transfer fee and the wage demands.

They say that Wolves will pay more than 10 million euros (£8.6 million) to sign the goalkeeper.

The report also says that he will earn more than 1.5 million euros (£1.3 million) per year at Molineux.

That works out just under £25,000-a-week. That seems like decent value for a first choice goalkeeper.

The report also claims that Olympiakos are well on the way to sourcing a replacement for Sa.

They have two main options, Tomáš Vaclík and Marco Bizot. The former seems more likely as they plan for life without Sa.

 

The progress in Wolves’ goalkeeping situation has felt slow at times this summer. But the Sa deal is of course linked to Rui Patricio’s exit.

It wouldn’t be a surprise to see them confirmed very close together and Jorge Mendes is of course involved in both.

Wolves fans will hope Sa can replicate Patricio’s consistent excellence and the assuredness which comes from having an experienced international goalkeeper between the sticks.

He might take time to adjust to English football and pre-season will be important in terms of getting him used to Bruno Lage’s demands.

But it seems like it won’t be too much longer before he arrives at Molineux.
