Wolves boss Lage reveals Neves contract talks

Wolves boss Bruno Lage has revealed new contract talks are underway with Ruben Neves.

The Portugal star has two years left on his contract but boss Bruno Lage is eager to keep him and is pushing for the club to offer him £100,000 a week.

The midfielder, 25, currently on around £60,000 a week, was expected to leave this summer but Manchester United and Arsenal were put off by Wolves' £80million price tag.

Lage said: “We are working on a new deal for Ruben. At the last game, the fans were singing 'keep Ruben' and we're doing everything on that front to keep him.

“Ruben has started the season with us and we have a great relationship.

“It's easy to work with him, he understands a lot of things – not just about him but the team – he's a great professional and he wants to keep learning and improving.

“And during last season, every challenge he was given he worked to meet it and I am so happy he's staying with us."
