Wolves’ critics claimed the club’s £15million record signing from Porto was only parachuted in by super-agent Jorge Mendes to help the Molineux club win promotion, before being flogged to one of the big beasts of European football for a tasty profit this summer.
But Neves says he has grown to love life with Wolverhampton and says he is more interested in being a Wanderer than a wanderer.
“Yes, I would like to stay,” revealed the midfielder at last night’s EFL award, after being edged out for the Championship Player of the Season award by Fulham’s Ryan Sessegnon.
“Honestly, I love to play here with Wolves. I love the boys, I love the club and I love the fans. I am really happy here.

“If it is possible, I would like to stay here to have my first year in the Premier League.

Manchester United Star Scott Mctominay Hailed For What He Said To Antonio Valencia After Tottenham Win
SCOTT MCTOMINAY has further endeared himself to the hearts of Manchester United fans after their FA Cup win over Tottenham.
The Red Devils are still firmly in the hunt for silverware after coming from behind to beat Spurs and set up a final clash against Chelsea next month.
Young midfielder Scott McTominay saw his captain struggling in the tunnel
McTominay, 21, wasn’t in the squad but was still there to lend a helping hand to Antonio Valencia.
United’s captain looked shattered after being replaced on the 80th minute for Matteo Darmian.
And at full-time he was snapped hobbling in the Wembley tunnel as he struggled walking to the dressing room.
But the young midfielder was on hand and said to his veteran team-mate: “Captain, put your arm around me.”
McTominay said to Valencia: “Captain, put your arm around me.”
He was left out of the squad for the FA Cup win but could still play his part
United fans took to Twitter to praise McTominay for his class and professionalism.
One said: “Shows a lot about his class and spirit even at such a young age.”

Another wrote: “And that is why Scott is a future star and the likes of Martial and Shaw are not. Attitude is far more important than talent.”
United showed their fighting spirit to book another Wembley date after falling behind through Dele Alli’s strike.

Tottenham Risk Losing The Likes Of Dele Alli And Harry Kane If They Can’t Work Out How To Win A Trophy… And Quickly
TOTTENHAM fans will be keeping their fingers crossed Saturday’s defeat by Manchester United does not result in them losing more than the FA Cup.
Mauricio Pochettino admitted it might take another manager to take the club to the next level – in two separate post-match interviews, so it was no slip of the tongue.

And the boss was not the only one in the Spurs camp who seemed to be contemplating leaving the club in the aftermath of their eighth successive semi-final defeat in football’s oldest domestic cup competition.
Dele Alli also voiced his frustration as he reiterated his desire to win trophies… Spurs followers will be hoping it was just the loss talking.
But there is no doubt Pochettino’s stars are reaching the stage – if they have not reached it already – where they have proved they can compete against the best…
They now want to start beating the best in finals and title races.

Given how professionally competitive and focused these guys are, you can rest assured that if they cannot fulfil their desires at Spurs they will have no problem leaving for a club where they can win medals.
We saw it last season with Kyle Walker, who after nine years without winning a medal at Spurs upped and left for Manchester City where in nine months he had won the Premier League title and Carabao Cup.

Oh and by moving to the Etihad he also more than doubled his wages and picked up a £5million signing-on fee to boot.
How many of his old Tottenham team-mates will now be looking at how things have worked out for him and will be thinking of doing the same this summer?

Cm Punk, Stone Cold Steve Austin And Chyna… Wwe Stars Who Fell Out With Vince Mcmahon’s Company
LONGTIME WWE Champion Bruno Sammartino – the company’s biggest star in the 1960s and 70s – passed away last week aged 82.
WWE has rightly celebrated his life and career, but the company wasn’t always on good terms with Sammartino.
Splash News Brunno Sammartino notoriously fell out with WWE after leaving the company
He’s one of several top stars who notoriously fell out with WWE and its chairman Vince McMahon.
Sun Sport looks at six legends with real-life grudges against WWE.
The “Living Legend” was WWE’s longest reigning champion ever, holding the belt for a combined total of 12 years. He was also at odds with the company for decades afterwards.
After leaving WWE in the late 1980s, Bruno became an outspoken critic of the direction Vince McMahon had taken his beloved sport.

He labeled the product as “garbage” and slammed steroid use, Hulk Hogan, and the Attitude Era – especially its top star Stone Cold Steve Austin.
Bruno said: “I didn’t care for him because of his mouth. He was a very, very vulgar individual.”

Sammartino was known for his integrity and as a defender of wholesome values – it was no surprise that he hated WWE’s then-ultra profane and sexualised product.
He refused a Hall of Fame for several years, saying it would be “hypocritical” of him to accept.
