Wolverhampton Wanderers complete the season-long loan signing of Benfica forward Raul Jimenez.

Wolverhampton Wanderers have completed the loan signing of Benfica forward Raul Jimenez.

Since earning promotion to the Premier League, Wolves have been heavily linked with a wide array of players and last weekend, Jimenez became the latest name to be associated with a switch to Molineux.

Wolves have now confirmed that a deal is in place for the Mexico international to spend the next campaign in the West Midlands, subject to international clearance and a work permit.

The 27-year-old has spent the last three seasons with Benfica with 18 goals coming from 80 league outings, but just 20 of those appearances have been made from the starting lineup.

Wolves have not disclosed whether they have an agreement to sign Jimenez on a permanent basis next summer, but reports have suggested that Nuno Espirito Santo will be able to purchase the player in 12 months' time.
