Last summer, Atletico Madrid signed Jonny Otto from Celta Vigo and then immediately loaned him out to Wolverhampton Wanderers.

The Spain international, who can play on either side of defence, has made 26 starts in the Premier League this season, while he has six more starts to his name in the cup competitions.

His performances for Nuno Espírito Santo’s side convinced Wolves to make his loan move permanent in January and the defender’s contract at the Molineux Stadium runs until 2023.

Jonny gave an interview to Radio Marca and explained the reasons behind his decision to extend his stay with the English club beyond his initial loan spell.

“I’m fine, happy and calm, it’s clear that Atlético is a big club and it’s a shame I could not make my debut [there], but I liked the Premier [League] so much that I decided to stay,” the 25-year-old explained.

“I always said when I was at Celta that the Premier [League] was the league I liked a lot. I had the option of staying for more seasons and I’m enjoying it, I’m very happy.

“I talked very little with the people of Atlético and that’s why, also, I made the decision to stay.”

The versatile fullback did not need time to settle to the needs of the English football and Jonny stressed the presence of Portuguese players at Wolves has helped him adapt to the city and the club.

“I’m in a team surrounded by Portuguese people who help me get to know the team and the city,” Jonny added.
