Speaking about joining up with the squad, Sa said: "It was good [first impressions]. I've spent five days in quarantine and only started training yesterday.

"It's been very pleasant, and I hope it will stay like this.

"I am already looking forward to starting the season and win as many games as possible."

The Premier League campaign kicks off on August 14 for Bruno Lage's side, when they will face FA Cup holders Leicester City at King Power Stadium.

Sa has named the league the best and explained his decision making on joining the West Midlands side.

"It's the best league in the world and Wolves is a very good team, that fights for good objectives too.

"I think it will be a good opportunity for me, so I decided to join the pack.

"I hope to achieve as many victories as possible in terms of team, but I also hope to achieve as many clean sheets as I can too."

Agent Neves and Patricio

Sa becomes the regular man in between the sticks following Patricio's departure to Italy, but the former Wolves stopped had an impact on Sa's move.

"It's good because I already knew most of them. It's always good to have other players that we already know, so it's been very good.

"Before I signed, I spoke with Ruben [Neves] and Rui Patricio.

"I asked him [Rui] how life was here and how the club is. We talked a little bit. He wished me lots of luck and I also wished him good luck."

And it's not just the players that Sa isn't oblivious to. The goalkeeper was at Benfica when his Lage was involved in the academy.

"I already knew him from Benfica times. We never worked together in. the Benfica academy, despite the fact we were there at the same time.

"But from what I have already experienced, he's a very good coach, with good ideas and we are excited to start the new season and start getting results."
