Wolverhampton Wanderers have express their delight on social media at the news that full-back Ruben Vinagre has committed his long-term future to the club.
The ace has signed a deal until 2024, having impressed in his two years at the club so far.
Vinagre was brought from AS Monaco in 2018 after an initial loan stint in 2017/18 with the club.
Last term he played second fiddle to Jonny Otto, but still managed to make 17 league appearances and 21 in all competitions.
The youngster is highly rated at Molineux and many fans believe he has the ability to nail down the left wing-back role for years to come.
The club’s sporting director Kevin Thelwell said (official website): “Off the pitch, he provides a mature head for someone so young and is a popular personality inside the dressing room.
“We’re excited to watch and help Ruben develop further this coming season and, after his impact in the two Asia Trophy games, we hope he’ll kick on once again.”
Wolves fans react
Many Wolves fans online were buzzing with the official announcement.
Vinagre has exciting potential, and it’s important for the ambitious club to be tieing down their assets.

Great bit of business; predicting a big season for Ruben! Hopefully a massive release clause just in case Barca come sniffing around again.
