Wolves have signed Rafa Mir from Valencia in a deal worth close to €2m, according to Super Deporte.

The Valencia regional newspaper, who have very good ties to the club, report Wolves are signing Mir permanently, in a move which is quite a coup for the Championship leaders.

Mir is very highly regarded in Spain and had been expected to join Real Madrid, with countless articles in recent weeks speaking of the move. Madrid saw an opportunity to sign Mir cheaply because of his contract situation, but they probably didn’t bargain on Wolves swooping in first.

Super Deporte report that Mir has already said goodbye to his colleagues at Valencia, and the move to Wolves is all agreed. The signing will be made official in the coming hours, according to the claims, and Mir moves to Wolves despite already having agreed to join Real Madrid and play for their second string.
