Daniel Podence completed his transfer from Olympiacos to Wolverhampton for a fee of £16.9 million (€20 million) and is now subject to international clearance.
“I’m very excited. It was always a childhood dream of mine to play in the Premier League and I look at this achievement as a dream come true,” Podence told the club website of Wolves.
“Wolves are a team with a big project, with ambitious goals to look forward to, where I’ll get to meet former team-mates with whom I had the pleasure to play with in the past and I hope to be very successful here.”

The 24-year old attacking midfielder, who can also play on both flanks, has signed a contract with Wolves, which will keep him at Molineaux until 2024. He becomes the eight player from Portugal in the Wolverhampton squad, and third from the Sporting Lisbon academy.
Podence has been playing for Olympiacos since the summer of 2018. He’s been enjoying his time at the Greek club, playing a total of 68 games, with 13 goals and 14 assists towards his name.
The Portuguese came through Sporting Lisbon’s youth ranks, joining the club when he was just 10. He went on to play for the first team between 2013-2016, having 40 games for the team.
