Barcelona and Wolves have confirmed the transfer of Nelson Semedo to the Premier League club in a deal worth an initial €30 million with a further €10m in potential add-ons. 

Portugal international Semedo, 26, joins the English side on a deal until 2023 with the option to extend his contract by an additional two years.

"I chose Wolves because it's a very good team that plays very good football," Semedo said. "Last year they did a very good season and it's a very important team in England, in also Europe. I hope this year we can do very good things.

"Coach Nuno is a very good coach. He did very good things here in Wolves, and in other teams too. For sure I'm going to learn a lot from him.

"The team did very good things in the last three years. I'm ambitious and I hope this year we can do very good things, reach the top six and, if it's possible, do something special." 

Semedo joined Barça from Benfica in 2017 and went on to make 124 appearances for the club (two goals, 11 assists) as he battled for the right-back position with Sergi Roberto. 

However, he never managed to become a first team regular and Barça agreed to sell him this summer as part of an overhaul of the current squad.

Barça will now move for Ajax's Sergiño Dest, while Norwich City's Max Aarons is also a target. 

El portugués había firmado por cinco temporadas por el FC Barcelona el 14 de julio de 2017 (hasta 2022) procedente del SL Benfica. El equipo azulgrana le puso una cláusula de 100 millones de euros y pagó 30 millones de euros más otros cinco en variables
