Ruben Vinagre has signed a new five-year deal at Wolves, the Premier League club have announced.

Sporting director Kevin Thelwell told the club’s official site: ‘Ruben has developed impressively since joining the club two seasons ago and is an important part of Nuno’s squad.
‘As the club has grown in recent times, Ruben has done the same, and performed commendably when called upon in the Premier League last season.
‘Off the pitch, he provides a mature head for someone so young and is a popular personality inside the dressing room.
