Wolves record signing Fabio Silva pays Porto passionate tribute

Wolves signing Fabio Silva has posted a farewell to Porto and his teammates.

The teenage striker signed for Wolves over the weekend for a club record £35m.

Silva declared: "Oh my Porto, where eternal youth tells us what it is like to be noble and loyal. Blue and white runs in my veins. Run now and always will. Love for this club, this way of life, are part of the intrinsic to me, always and forever.

"Victories, joys and, above all, those values that represent a city, have always been lived intensely. This path was built with surrender, dedication, love and audacity ... the authentic audacity of the people of Porto ... And let no one dare to stifle the audacious cry of all its people!

"My most sincere thanks to the management of Porto, to all my teammates, and to each one of you, who vibrate in each action, and who release in unison, a cry for us all.

"It is not a 'goodbye', it is a 'see you soon'."
