Premier League newcomers Wolves have signed Portugal goalkeeper Rui Patricio from Sporting Lisbon.

The 30-year-old was one of seven Sporting players who last week terminated their own contracts following an attack by fans.

He has joined on a four-year deal, subject to international clearance.

Patricio won the 2016 European Championships with Portugal and is currently with his country at the World Cup in Russia.

The signing follows the £10m capture of Porto defender Willy Boly, while Mexico forward Raul Jimenez has joined Nuno Espirito Santo's side on a season-long loan deal from another Portuguese side, Benfica.
