Wolves captain Conor Coady: Fabio Silva showing right signs

Wolves captain Conor Coady has no doubts about the potential and quality of Fabio Silva.

Silva, still 18, has endured some difficult moments since being snapped up for £35million from Porto last summer.

Having netted in Monday's 1-1 draw at fierce rivals Albion, though, he moved on to four Premier League goals and could well go on to end the season as Wolves' top scorer – with Ruben Neves and Pedro Neto currently the joint leaders, on five.

And Coady said on the teenager: "We know what Fabio brings

"He's a young lad who has come into the team and done exceptionally well in the games that he's played.

"He's scored a few goals now as well.

"He deserves it because of the runs he makes. He is always moving between the lines and stretching the defence. That's all good to see.

"We had some young players on the pitch who did exceptionally well, in a real, real tough derby.

"So, hopefully, they continue improving and getting better as that's the main thing for us now."
