Wolverhampton Wanderers have completed the signing of Paulo Alves, according to Sports Mole.

The former Liverpool youngster has signed for the newly promoted Premier League team.

The Portuguese starlet becomes the latest player from Portugal to join the West-Midlands club since manager Nuno Espirito-Santo joined the club in the summer of 2017.

The club have announced that 20-year-old player has signed a two-year deal with them and will feature heavily for their Premier League 2 side or the Under-23s as they are also known.

Alves came through the ranks at Portuguese champions FC Porto before joining Liverpool in 2015. He made 12 appearances for the Liverpool Under-23 team last campaign.

Wolverhampton Wanderers have announced that their U-23 side will be taking part in the Checkatrade Trophy this upcoming season and that should offer Alves the experience of facing the teams that ply their trade in the English Football League.

Wolves continue to strengthen their squad as they prepare for the upcoming Premier League season.

The club won the Sky Bet Championship last season in fine fashion and will be hoping to do well in the top competition this season.
