Moutinho started Portugal’s first two games of this summer’s World Cup.

Premier League newcomers Wolves have signed Portugal international midfielder Joao Moutinho from Monaco for £5m on a two-year deal.

The 31-year-old follows Portugal goalkeeper Rui Patricio to Molineux and should partner Ruben Neves in midfield.

With 113 caps, Moutinho is Portugal’s third most-capped player behind Cristiano Ronaldo (154) and Luis Figo (127) and helped them win Euro 2016.

Moutinho started his career at Sporting Lisbon before joining Porto in 2010.

He enjoyed a successful three-season spell at Porto, winning the Primeira Liga in 2011, 2012 and 2013, as well as the 2011 Europa League and Portuguese Cup.

Ligue 1 side Monaco paid £21.5m to sign Moutinho in 2013 and he went on to score 11 goals in 211 games for the French club, helping them win the French title in 2017.
