After a tumultuous summer for Wolves fans, full of uncertainty surrounding incomings as well as several high-profile outgoings, there is finally some positive transfer news for the supporters to celebrate. Fabio Silva’s future at Molineux has been all but assured after months of transfer speculation.

Amid interest from abroad, news broke on Tuesday that Wolves have no interest in selling their Portuguese starlet and are committed to holding onto the 21-year-old striker.

The news, broken by Liam Keen of the Express and Star, will come as a welcome boost to the Wolves faithful after the lively performance put in by the no.29 on Monday night when he came off the bench in the 1-0 defeat at Old Trafford.

Silva, 21, impressed on two separate loan spells last season with Anderlecht and PSV, in which he scored goals domestically as well as in European competition for both sides.

Silva had decided to stay under previous manager Julen Lopetegui, so there will be work for Gary O’Neil to do in that regard, but the club see Silva as an important asset for the season ahead.

O’Neil has already been complimentary of the striker in his press conference ahead of the opening game of the season last week, highlighting his “good pre-season” and how he expects Silva to be “a big part of what we do this year”.

All signs point to Fabio Silva being an important player for Wolves this season, and fans will hope that he can repay the faith that they and the club have shown in him by returning a strong goalscoring season in 2023/24.
