Wolves: 5 things to expect from Adama Traore

Wolves: 5 things to expect from Adama Traore

Newly-promoted Wolves announced the news on Twitter on Wednesday morning with the caption: "Bienvenido Adama" to welcome Traore to Molineux.

He made 34 appearances in the Championship for Boro last season, providing ten assists for his team-mates and chipping in with five goals.

Traore becomes the 10th arrival of a busy summer transfer window at Wolves ahead of their first campaign back in the top flight since suffering relegation in 2012-13.

While it feels like he's been around for a while already, Traore is still only 22, meaning he has plenty of time to grow, improve and hone his wild talents - with Wolves hoping that the five-year contract he's signed will see him do so under their umbrella.

Wolves' record signing is Portugal midfielder Ruben Neves, who joined from Porto for about £16m past year. I had a chat with Gibbo yesterday and a good chat with Adama and I hope they're both successful at their new clubs.

"When I came to the club he looked a little bit sullen and didn't have any confidence, but at the end he played with a smile on his face and excited a lot of people".

Traore was not involved for Boro in their win over Sheffield United last night after undergoing a medical with Wolves yesterday.

'Adama was my best buddy so to lose him is really hard, ' Pulis said.

Traore joined Boro from Aston Villa, who bought him from Barcelona.

After a stellar World Cup campaign, Vida has shown that he has the capability of going toe-to-toe with some of the best attacking players in the world and would certainly be able to cope with the rigours of Premier League football.
