Wolverhampton Wanderers defender Toti Gomes has signed a new five-a-half-year contract.
The 25-year-old has been a key player this season under head coach Gary O’Neil, having featured in 20 of Wolves’ 23 Premier League matches this season.
Sporting director Matt Hobbs said: “With Toti, what you get is someone who gives absolutely everything and provides different variation – his athleticism has given us real balance across the back. He’s a great guy to have around, a really positive person, driven and a full international now.
“I say it a lot, because they’re the type of people we want to bring in, but he’s great around the place, while still having a huge amount of humility. He wants to be the best player he can be every single day and he trains well. To earn contracts here, people have to earn them with what they do on the pitch and off the pitch, and Toti’s earned it.
“He’ll want to kick on. He’ll want to be a starter for Portugal, and he knows the best way to do that is putting in great performances with us. He knows he still has lots of things to do, but with his personality, he’ll make sure he keeps striving. I’ve got no doubt that he’ll keep improving for sure.”
Wolves signed Toti from Estoril in 2020, and he was immediately loaned to Grasshoppers. He then spent the first half of the 2021-22 season on loan at the Swiss side, before being recalled back by his parent club.
He made his 50th competitive appearance for Wolves in Sunday’s 4-2 Premier League win at Chelsea.
