Gaffers Bar is owned by life-long Wolves fan Neil Breakwell, 48, who was originally from Oxley.

He moved out to the sun-kissed island 12 years ago where he first worked as a DJ.

Now two decades on, he is running a successful bar which is visited by Wolves fan holidaying on the sun-drenched island.

Mr Breakwell said: "I never imagined I'd be running a Wolves bar in Tenerife. I took over the bar seven years ago when it was just abandoned.

"I turned it into a dedicated Wolves bar three years ago. Since Wolves have been on the up we have had a lot more visitors.

"It took a lot of work to turn around the bar but now it is worth around £100,000."

Wolves legend and all-time top scorer Steve Bull visited the bar where he played pool for them.

And Morgan Gibbs-White visited during the summer while on holiday during pre-season.

Neil has decorated his bar with memorabilia.

There is memorabilia decked all over the Wolves from signed shirts to photo's of Steve Bull playing for England.

The bar is currently undergoing a revamp and is shut for two weeks.

Neil is moving the bar itself and installing a mirror with the Wolves logo etched into it.

He also wants to install LED lights for the eyes on the wolf head on the bar itself.

Neil's favourite player of the current squad is Ruben Neves - but his all time favourite is Bully.

He paid a visit back him recently where he watched Wolves take on Chelsea and Newcastle United in the Premier League.
