Wolverhampton Wanderers winger Pedro Neto has signed a new five-year contract, retaining him at Molineux till 2025.
One of the club’s burgeoning Portuguese contingent, the broad man has nailed down a starting berth in Nuno Espirito Santo’s side this season having joined the club from Lazio in August 2019.
The 20-year-old has began every of Wolves’ seven Premier League games thus far this time period, scoring emphatically towards Fulham and offering assists towards Sheffield United on the opening day and last time out towards Crystal Palace.
The Portugal Under-21 has been rewarded for his shows, placing pen to paper on an improved long-term contract within the Black Country.
Speaking to Wolves’ official web site having signed contemporary phrases, Neto said: “It’s been amazing being here. I love being here; the family that we are building, all the club, it’s been fantastic for me, so I’m very happy.
“This new deal shows I’m working very hard and I was expecting it because I worked for it. I always work to improve my game, so it comes with that. I work hard every day, so I’m very happy about it, but I will continue to work now.
“We say that nothing is given to you, so you have to work hard and what I have done in the last year-and-a-half is work hard every day, continue to improve and learn from my teammates.”
He added: “We go day by day; improving, working and letting things happen naturally, but I know what I want to achieve. I want to be the best.
“But I don’t think in the future, because the future depends on what you do in the present, so work every day, learning everything, little things day by day, and I will continue that.”
The winger follows his supervisor Nuno, Conor Coady, Raul Jimenez and Max Kilman in signing a new long-term deal on the club in recent weeks.
Neto completed the 2019/20 season with 44 appearances – predominantly from the bench – and 5 goals and assists to his name. He already appears set to top these tallies this time round.
