Joao Moutinho eyes Wolves contract extension

Moutinho to extend Wolves stay

Portuguese midfielder Joao Moutinho hopes to extend his contract at Wolverhampton Wanderers beyond next summer. The player has under 12 months remaining on his deal, and has indicated that he would like to stay at Molineux.

Spanish clubs Villarreal and Real Betis are both interested in Moutinho, but the 33-year-old would like to stay in the Premier League and win a trophy with Wolves.

“Thankfully I have won a trophy at every club, and I have left a legacy,” said Moutinho. “It’s important for me to learn, and contribute to the success of these clubs.

“The club I play for now has the same objective. I am here to help, and to give my all.

“It’s always been my ambition to play in England. I wanted to feel the passion of the fans that you can see on TV.

“Everything I have done in my career has led me here. My time so far in football has been amazing.

“I made each decision to ensure my career development.”

Moutinho has previously had spells with Porto and Monaco prior to his spell at Molineux.

Chelsea receive double injury boost

Chelsea have received a fresh injury boost with young duo Callum Hudson-Odoi and Reece James tipped to return to first-team action following the ongoing international break.

Hudson-Odoi suffered a serious Achilles injury during the penultimate month of the previous campaign but he has made a swift recovery to participate with the Blues in regular training.

James, meanwhile, has been a short-term absentee following the ankle problem sustained on England Under-20 duty but he appears close to making his Blues debut after similarly returning to first-team training.

According to injury analyst Ben Dinnery, both players are set to make their injury comebacks following the international break and they could take the playing field by the end of the month.

Hudson-Odoi’s absence has not hampered the team drastically with the emergence of Mason Mount while Tammy Abraham has been able to show his goalscoring exploits.

On the other hand, James has been regarded as the future choice for the right-back spot but he could be handed with an early debut, considering the poor form of Cesar Azpilicueta in the role this season.

Sami Khedira news

Wolves are chasing Juventus’ midfielder Sami Khedira on a reported 15 million euro transfer move. The German international, who won the World Cup in Brazil in 2012, is reportedly ready to move to England in search of regular first-team football.

The 32-year-old has a deal with the Turin side until 2021 and has been informed by newly appointed manager Maurizio Sarri that he is free to leave the club.

The former Real Madrid star, who has been with Juventus since 2015, is seeking regular first-team football after the arrival of Aaron Ramsey from Arsenal.

Last season Khedira played in just 10 Serie A games, scoring two goals, and was mainly restricted to a bit part role at the club due to the emergence of Emre Can.

It is understood that Khedira is frustrated with a lack of game time at Juve and has instructed his agent to find him a new club prior to the end of the transfer window, with also reported interest from China and also in his homeland Germany, with Werder Bremen and former club VfB Stuttgart interested.
