Wolves due bumper windfall thanks to loan pair Helder Costa and Ivan Cavaleiro

Wolves are due a bumper windfall courtesy of loan pair Helder Costa and Ivan Cavaleiro.

The Daily Mail says Wolves will net a £10million windfall in promotion bonuses from the transfers of Costa and Cavaleiro to Leeds and Fulham.

Both deals contained clauses that guaranteed Wolves extra funds - about £5m per player - if both clubs were promoted. Leeds went up as champions and Fulham joined them after beating Brentford in the play-off final.

It represents excellent business for Wolves, who paid about £21m to sign the pair when they were still a Championship club.

This season, Costa made 43 league appearances for Leeds, with Cavaleiro featuring the same number of times for Fulham. Both made significant contributions to their teams' success.
