Nelson Semedo Signs For Wolverhampton Wanderers

Nelson Semedo has completed a move from Barcelona to Wolverhampton Wanderers on an initial three-year deal, leaving Spain for England.

Nelson Semedo arrives at Molineux in a reported £32.2million (€35m) deal as a direct replacement for Matt Doherty, who departed Wolves for Tottenham last month.

The Portugal international is the latest player to leave the Camp Nou as new boss Ronald Koeman tries to revamp Barcs’s first-team following a disastrous 2019-20 campaign.

The 26-year-old featured 42 times in all competitions last season, scoring once, as Barca lost the LaLiga title, failed to win a trophy and crashed out of the Champions League following an embarrassing 8-2 loss to Bayern Munich.

Nelson Semedo who spent three years at Camp Nou after signing from Benfica, posted a message to Barca on his Instagram page on Tuesday before Wolves confirmed his arrival on Wednesday morning.

Semedo wrote: “Thank you very much Barcelona for giving me the dream of wearing this shirt. Thank you for making me grow as a player and as a person.”I’ve had three wonderful years that I won’t forget. I want to thank my team-mates, the staff, the fans and all the people who have helped me from the moment I arrived until today.”

Wolves executive chairman Jeff Shi who welcomed Nelson Semedo to the club said: “It isn’t often that we have the opportunity to sign a world-class player from a world-class club.

“Nelson’s signing shows we will never stop progressing and we are still hungry and humble in our heart.”
