Wolverhampton Wanderers are back in the big time after winning the Championship in emphatic style.

Nuno Espirito Santo's Wolves side have been entertaining all season and despite a brief blip they recovered and secured a place back in the top flight.

"You look at their owners, Wolves owners where they are involved in the recruitment of players as well, they do have a lot of top players they are able to pick from as well," Bellamy told The Debate.

"Obviously they still have to buy them from their clubs but there's some top players out there, especially in Portugal, they're going to be looking to bring over and I'm sure with the agency they're involved with there's going to be some (big signings).

"Listen, Wolves, they're going to be in the Premier League for a long time."
