The 21-year-old Iberian has set The Championship alight throughout the campaign, scoring a handful of wonder-strikes and being crowned the club's Player of the Season.

But with the promotion party in full flow for his footballing colleagues, who jetted off to Los Angeles earlier this week to celebrate, Neves had other – more romantic – things on his mind.

On Thursday night, the star took to social media to reveal he had asked his other half Debora to marry him, and to his delight... "she said yes!"

He posted a picture with his new fiancée on Twitter as the pair enjoyed a class of champagne on a boat in picturesque settings.

It comes nine months after the couple welcomed their baby daughter to the family in August, just as he joined for the Old Gold and Black from Portuguese giants FC Porto.

Neves also received the goal of the season – for his stunning 35-yard volley against Derby County, and players player of the season at the Wolves End of Season Awards Dinner on Tuesday evening.
