Wolves journalist Nathan Judah thinks that the writing could be on the wall when it comes to the future of loanee Vitinha.
Nuno Espirito Santo’s men signed Vitinha, valued at, last summer and do have the option to make the deal permanent if they desire. However, he hasn’t exactly had much opportunity to prove himself at Molineux , only starting five times across all competitions and making 16 appearances in total.
And given thethat are currently going through the team right now, speaking on the , Judah thinks that if he doesn’t get game time soon, then it’s sending a pretty clear message that the club won’t look to make the deal permanent:
Bye-bye Neto: Wolves must swoop for "lovely" £47k-p/w gem who "doesn't stop running" - opinion
Wolves legend Steve Bull has urged the club to sign Burnley winger Dwight McNeil this summer.Therefore, the transfer window will be incredibly important for the Old Gold.
“It wouldn’t surprise me if [Morgan] Gibbs-White plays on Saturday, but if he does, and you don’t see Vitinha, there’s no way they’re signing Vitinha, surely. How can they sign Vitinha when every other option avenue is open and they’re still not playing him? Whether it’s Neves, Moutinho injured, or Neto out and he’s still not getting a look-in, there’s no way they’re gonna sign him, surely?”
TIF Thoughts on Nathan Judah’s comments about Vitinha’s future at the club…
Judah is certainly right to frame his future this way, because if not now, then when is he going to get a chance? Wolves need to start looking ahead to next season and what their team is set to look like, and they clearly have a desire to make Vitinha part of the future by the fact they agreed an option to make the loan permanent.
'He could be a central midfielder' - Nuno Santo urged to unleash 'fantastic' talent at Wolves
Wolves journalist Joe Edwards says he would like to see Vitinha play more this season following his display for the Portugal U21 side. The 21-year-old midfielder, valued at £5.4m on Transfermarkt, recently played all 90 minutes against their England counterparts in the UEFA European U21 Championship in a game that they won 2-0 on their […]The 21-year-old midfielder, valued at £5.4m on Transfermarkt, recently played all 90 minutes against their England counterparts in the UEFA European U21 Championship in a game that they won 2-0 on their way to topping their group.
But it just seems like something of a wasted endeavour to have not played him much up to this point when they could potentially have a real difference-maker in the team just ready and waiting to go but he hasn’t had much of a chance to prove it.
And with Wolves now left with pretty much, now seems as good a time as any to see what he can bring to the table.
