John has extended his contract with Benfica by a year, but Wolves have agreed a fixed fee of €8 million to make the loan permanent should the attacker impress this season.

John joined Benfica from Twente back in 2012, but hasn’t established himself with the Portuguese giants. He spent last season on loan with Reading, where he made 28 appearances and scored four goals.
