Rúben Neves was Wolves' star player in the Championship last season and he has now committed his long-term future to the club.

Wolves midfielder Rúben Neves has signed a five-year contract with the newly promoted Premier League side.

Neves commits to Wolves despite interest from major clubs

Neves was Wolves' standout performer as they won the Championship last season, having joined from Porto in a surprise move reported to be worth £15.8 million.

And the Portugal international's performances - including six league goals - had brought speculation that Liverpool and Manchester United could swoop.

The 21-year-old has pledged his future to the Molineux outfit, though, and will be a pivotal figure in their first season in the top flight since the 2011-12 campaign.

Wolves' Thelwell expecting Neves to take Premier League by storm

Wolves sporting director Kevin Thelwell said: "It is no secret that there has been interest from other clubs, but Ruben is very mature for his age, incredibly level-headed, and loves being a part of the Wolves family.

"Ruben has taken everything in his stride since joining us, and I am positive he will continue his form into next season and have a huge impact on the Premier League."
