Wolves wing-back Ruben Vinagre makes Olympiacos move

Ruben Vinagre has left Wolves to join Greek champions Olympiacos on an initial loan deal.


The Portuguese wing-back will spend the whole of 2020/21 with last season's Europa League rivals, who have the option to make the move permanent for £22.5million next summer.

Vinagre's exit comes after Wolves brought in another left-wing-back, Rayan Ait-Nouri, from French club Angers yesterday.

The highly-rated 19-year-old arrived at Molineux on loan, with a view to a permanent £20m deal.

Vinagre departs having made 70 appearances in gold and black, scoring three goals.

The 21-year-old was signed on loan from Monaco in the summer of 2017 and then snapped up on a five-year contract the following year.

His new club Olympiacos bowed out to Wolves in the Europa League last-16 last term and are third after three matches in the new Greek Super League campaign.
