Wolves striker Patrick Cutrone joins Valencia on loan transfer until end of season after flop £16m move

WOLVES striker Patrick Cutrone has joined Nuno Espirito Santo’s former club Valencia on loan until the end of the season.

The 23-year-old Italian is on his travels again, weeks after being recalled from another loan spell at Fiorentina.

The former AC Milan man made four appearances on his short-lived return to Molineux but failed to score and has never settled in England, despite being popular with Wolves fans.

He signed for £16million in July 2019 but has only scored three times for the club.

His last appearance for Wolves was as a substitute against Chorley in the FA Cup.

Valencia – currently 14th in Spain’s La Liga – have not included an option to buy clause in the loan deal, meaning Cutrone will return to Wolves in the summer.

Cutrone will be looking to break his duck this season having failed to hit the net in Italy.

He made 11 substitute league appearances from the bench but failed to register a goal or assist.

Meanwhile Wolves' hopes of signing Christian Eriksen have hit the rocks.

Inter boss Antonio Conte has been accused of 'humiliating' Eriksen by awarding him just five league starts this season, the latest coming in Saturday's 4-0 demolition of Benevento.
