Wolves manager Nuno won't rush Fabio Silva Prem introduction

Wolves manager Nuno isn't rushing Fabio Silva into the Premier League.

A highly-rated youngster, Silva arrived at Molineux from Porto this summer in a deal worth £35m.

Nuno was asked about if he was being patient with Silva, who has been an unused substitute in the last three Premier League, ahead of Friday's meeting with Crystal Palace.

He replied: "Yes, but at the same time working very hard, and this is what Fabio is doing.

"Every minute of the training session has to be very useful and always an investment of time and actions.

"He's been involved in previous games, although not in the best moments always for the team as regards the final score, but it's hard.

"But he's an option and I think he can help us. He is a goalscorer and he can definitely help us.

"It requires time and it is a big change. But here at Compton, he's doing very well.

"He's settling down. He has the squad to help him and he is speaking the language better. Step by step, he will get there."
