Wolves have signed Real Madrid defender Jesus Vallejo on a season-long loan.

The Premier League club announced the move on their official website and Vallejo joins on the back of captaining Spain to European Under-21 Championship glory this summer.

Vallejo made seven of his 19 Real appearances last season and recovered from injury to net his first LaLiga goal against Villarreal in May.

The 22-year-old has had previous loan spells at Real Zaragoza and with Eintracht Frankfurt in Germany.

Vallejo, who has won 22 caps for Spain's under-21 side, watched his new team beat Crusaders 2-0 at Molineux on Thursday and could now make his debut in the second leg of the Europa League tie next week.

Wolves' previous summer business saw them turn the loan moves of Raul Jimenez and Leander Dendoncker into permanent deals.

Wolves have broken their transfer record to sign Raul Jimenez for a reported £32million.

The striker has penned a four-year deal at Molineux having been on loan at the club from Benfica this season.

He is Wolves' top scorer with 15 goals, which has helped fire the club to seventh in the Premier League and Sunday's FA Cup semi-final against Watford.

Mexico international Jimenez spent three years with Benfica, netting 22 times in 101 games after joining from Atletico Madrid in 2015.

The signing of the 27-year-old takes Wolves' spending to around £164million under owners Fosun and they have broken their transfer record five times.

Adama Traore and Jonny were the previous biggest deals at £18million after signing from Middlesbrough and Atletico Madrid respectively this season.
