Report: Wolves won't make Willian Jose loan spell into a permanent deal
Wolves player Willian Jose is unlikely to make his loan move at the Molineux Stadium into a permanent deal.
According to Marca, Real Sociedad, Jose’s parent club, are looking at other options for the ace, who the want out this summer.
There was conflicting reports over the details of the player’s contract following his move in the January transfer window.
Early suggestions were that the clause to make the move permanent was a mandatory one. However, since then it’s emerged that it’s an optional clause.
The Spanish publication back-up this claim by saying the a transfer will not happen. Jose was available to the Midlanders for €25m (£21.5m) this transfer window.
But, the Brazilian suffered a horrid spell with ex-manager Nuno Espirito Santo’s team, scoring just one goal across 18 appearances.
Brilliant: Willian Jose report proves good transfer news for Wolves
After his shocking time with Wolves, the news that Willian Jose will not be joining on a permanent deal will be music to the ears of all associated with the club.
His performances over the course of this half-season have been nothing short of disastrous. The 29-year-old’s lack of pace and inability to play with the ball at his feet was scary.
At a mere 18-years-old, Fabio Silva, despite his lack of goals, was a far better option for the club. The Portuguese youngster averaged more shots per game than his more experienced counterpart.
He also managed three assists, showing off great link-up play throughout the campaign.
The centre-forward drew criticism for his displays early on in his Wolves career. Tim Spiers claimed he had a ‘downturn in form’, hinting Pedro Neto and Adama Traore weren’t being rewarded for their performances.
Jose’s career in the Midlands didn’t go as planned. Hearing news that his move won’t be become permanent means the club can focus on finding a forward who can link with the midfielders.
