Willian Jose signed for Wolves in the winter market, as the Premier League club looked to get themselves cover for Raul Jimenez after his head injury.

The Brazilian had long wanted a move to English football, and a year earlier had refused to play for Real Sociedad as he tried to push through a move to Tottenham.

Spurs’ offer wasn’t close to what La Real thought acceptable, yet a year later they found themselves sending him to Wolves on a loan deal, albeit it with an eye towards the transfer becoming permanent this summer.

Since then, Willian Jose has been given 665 minutes across nine Premier League matches and has so far failed to score in the competition. That’s naturally seen doubt over what will happen in the summer, especially with Wolves’ Mexican hero getting closer to a return.

Over at Real Sociedad there’s not much worry. Mundo Deportivo cover claims from England of Wolves having a plan to get a discount on the €25m agreed purchase clause.

As it stands, the La Liga side are unaware of this and remain ‘completely convinced’ Wolves will sign the player on a permanent deal in the summer. That’s partly due to the terms of the loan, which would see the English club having to pay €3m in compensation should they send Willian Jose back to Spain.
