Wolves legend Steve Bull raved about the quality of Ruben Neves, when writing his regular column for the Express & Star, labelling the Portuguese midfielder as 'world-class'.

The 20-year-old joined the Black Country outfit from Porto in the summer, for a fee believed to be in the region of £15.8 million, and he has really impressed ever since for Nuno Espirito Santo's side.

Neves has played a major role in his side's surge to the top of the Championship table this season, and his importance to the manner in which they play cannot be underestimated.

The former Porto man has played in all but one of Wolves' 30 Championship games so far this season, scoring four goals in the process - all of them being absolute wonder strikes.

Bull, who scored 306 goals for Wolves, offered high words of praise for Neves, when writing a column for the Express & Star, whilst warning his former club that there could be a lot of interest in the Portuguese ace in the summer:

"We know what he (Neves) can do, his quality is there week after week and the other players have complete faith in him. He’s a world-class talent and I’m sure clubs are going to be interested in him in the summer. If no-one snaps him up then Wolves will be keeping hold of a quality, quality player."

Next up for Wolves is a home game against Queens Park Rangers on Saturday, and it will be no surprise to see Neves lead his side to another victory, as they continue to bulldoze their way back to the Premier League.
