Wolves have the option to make the deal permanent this summer.

Wolves have completed the loan signing of Brazilian striker Willian Jose from Real Sociedad with a view to a permanent transfer.

The deal, which is subject to a work permit and international clearance, sees the 29-year-old move to Molineux until the end of the season.

Wolves then have the option to make the switch permanent. Jose is not expected to be available for Wednesday’s Premier League trip to Chelsea.

Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo has been short of options up front since the fractured skull suffered by Raul Jimenez against Arsenal two months ago.

Wolves have won just one of their nine Premier League matches since, scoring 10 goals in the process.

Speaking about Jose’s signing earlier this week, Nuno said: “Things are going on but there is nothing signed yet so we can’t speak too much about the situation. I will speak more deeply about him when things are signed and ready to go.”

The striker has scored 62 goals in 170 appearances for Sociedad, who he joined in 2016.

Six of those have come this season, including both in Wednesday’s 2-0 victory over Cordoba in the Copa Del Rey.

Jose, who was capped at Under-20 level, began his career with Brazilian side Barueri and had spells on loan with Real Madrid and Real Zaragoza before making a permanent move to Europe.
