Joao Moutinho and Diego Costa leave Wolves

Two of the important Wolves’ players have officially left the club.

Joao Moutinho and Diego Costa have bid farewell to Wolverhampton Wanderers as their contracts expired, making them free agents. The departure of these two seasoned footballers marks the end of their respective chapters at Wolves, leaving fans with mixed emotions.

Joao Moutinho, the Portuguese midfield maestro, joined Wolves in the summer of 2018 from AS Monaco. His arrival was met with great anticipation, as he brought a wealth of experience and skill to the team. Moutinho’s vision, passing ability, and football intelligence were instrumental in Wolves’ success during his tenure. The Portuguese played a crucial role in their promotion to the Premier League and subsequent solid performances in the top-flight.


Diego Costa, the Spanish striker, arrived at Molineux in January as a free agent after leaving Atletico Madrid. Costa’s reputation as a physical and combative forward and his signing brought a renewed sense of fire to Wolves’ attacking options. Costa showcased glimpses of his clinical finishing during his brief time with the club. His presence in the dressing room was also highly valued, as he brought a winning mentality and leadership qualities to a young Wolves squad.
