The £15million club record signing has been a revelation this season after moving from Porto last summer.

The 21-year-old has scored six stunning goals and regularly wowed supporters with his majestic midfield play.

Big clubs from the Premier League and across Europe will be watching Neves closely but he has confirmed his intentions to stay with Wolves.

"Yes, I would like to stay," Neves said at last night's EFL award, where he missed out of the player of the season prize to Fulham's Ryan Sessegnon.

"Honestly, I love to play here. I love the boys and I love the fans. I am really happy here. I have it all to stay, but in football we never know.

"Of course, it is my first season in the Premier League. It is the place that Wolves deserve. The fans deserve it as well. So I am happy here, like I said before.

"If it is possible, I would like to stay here to have my first year in the Premier League.

"We go in the same path (in the Premier League), we work hard in the way that we play.


"Of course, I think all the players enjoyed this moment. That’s what we wanted from the beginning of the season. Now we can enjoy it because we are in the Premier League and that’s the most important thing. It is really good for me. When I came here, I came to improve myself and help the club.

"Fortunately, I have improved myself this year in a really good league so I am happy to be here. I love the club and I love the fans. I am happy to be here and fortunately, we are in the Premier League and that’s the most important thing."

Neves could cap a perfect season by going to the World Cup with Portugal.

He was called up for their most recent friendlies and Neves revealed the national team staff have subscribed to Wolves TV to watch him play.

"All players are thinking about that but honestly, I am focused on here and now," Neves said. "After, if I have to go to the World Cup then I will be happy with that.

"They have Wolves TV to see some of my games, sometimes they see it on Sky Sports so, yes, they see my games."
