Pedro Neto details Wolves goals after signing new five-year contract at Molineux

Wolves winger Pedro Neto has signed a new five-year contract, to keep him at Molineux until 2025.

The 20-year-old Portugal Under-21 international’s new deal is just reward for his maturation since joining from Lazio last summer.

Neto has gradually increased his playing time under Nuno Espirito Santo, and was a major reason for the club’s decision to sell Diogo Jota to Liverpool.

This term, Neto has started all seven of Wolves ‘ Premier League games, showing his versatility in a number of roles, while scoring the winner against Fulham recently.

He has also been keeping Adama Traore out of the side.

“It’s been amazing being here,” Neto told the club website. “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 team-mates.”a group of men playing football on a field: Neto in action against Crystal Palace last time out© POOL/AFP via Getty Images Neto in action against Crystal Palace last time out

He continued: “In my first interview, I said that I want to be the best, so I have to work every day because I have to compete with my teammates in a healthy way.

“I have to compete to play, to improve, and day by day I try to learn something.

“It’s been very good to be here and learn a lot with the coach, with my teammates, with everyone, and I will keep improving.

“I think it’s the good thing about this team, because we all think the same way, we’re like a pack, like we say, so we work all to the same goals, all of us try to improve every day, because the way that we play is to improve.

“It’s the mentality of the team and the mentality of the players that are taking this club to a higher level.

“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.”

The Portugal under-21 international has become the fourth Wolves player to agree new terms since the start of the 2020/21 season.

Wanderers boss Nuno has also signed a new contract with the club since the season began too.
