​Goncalo Guedes: Portuguese contingent convinced me about Wolves

Goncalo Guedes admits he was lured to Wolves by manager Bruno Lage and his fellow Portugal team-mates.

The 25-year-old has reunited with Lage, who he played under during his time in the Benfica academy.

"I had two or three phone calls with the manager, we already knew each other from my time at Benfica, so it was key to me coming to Wolves," he said.

"Speaking to Bruno and some of my national team-mates made me want to come here, as they said it was a great league and that they wanted to achieve big things at Wolves, so speaking to them was definitely one of the biggest reasons.

"A lot of them spoke to me and told me to come here when we were together with the national team. They told me that it was a club that was growing a lot, with much more recognition than in the past and speaking to them was critical for me.

"I already have a great relationship with some. I already played two, three seasons together with Nelson (Semedo) at Benfica and then the national team, so we already have a really close relationship. And I've known Ruben (Neves), (Joao) Moutinho and (Jose) Sa for a while from the national team, which is great and will make for a much easier adjustment."
