Despite the short time Patrick Cutrone has spent in Spain so far, it seems his loan at Valencia hasn’t been going as expected.

Brought back by Wolverhampton Wanderes from a spell at Fiorentina in January, the striker joined the La Liga side at the end of the transfer window on a six-month deal.

It turns out that besides getting few minutes in his first two matches, he was left on the bench at the weekend, and is failing to convince manager Javi Gracia.

That’s what AS reports today. They point out Cutrone has been a ‘bench signing so far’, since he can’t get confidence from his manager.

That’s probably a bad sign for Wolves, who’d obviously be more benefited by a loanee who’s standing out or at least playing for his new club.

Cutrone’s contract with the Premier League side runs until 2023, and despite rumours in January saying he’d end up being used by Nuno Espírito Santo, it now looks unlikely he’ll have a future at Molineux.
