WOLVES loanee Fabio Silva admits he “maybe” would have liked to stay a little longer at Porto instead of moving to Molineux.
Silva joined the West Midlands outfit in 2020 at the tender age of 18 after a club record £35million deal with the Portuguese giants.
The centre-forward has since failed to set the Premier League alight as he only managed a mere total of four goals and six assists in 62 appearances.
The Portugal Under-21 international’s struggles led to Wolves loaning him out to Anderlecht in July.
The 20-year-old’s stint in Belgium didn’t last long as he was then loaned out in January to PSV Eindhoven, where he still plays.
Now the Portuguese ace looks back at his career and admits it hurts him that he didn’t have time to do more at Porto.
Silva told Voetbal International: “If amounts of €40m (£35m) are paid, clubs sometimes cannot refuse.
“That was the case with me. But I had just turned 18. It hurts a bit that I haven’t been able to show more at Porto.
“People don’t always understand football very well. It’s not that I myself think at 18: I’m going to Wolves, play in the Premier League.
“I had no control over that. It was the decision of the club and given the transfer fee I understand.
“Maybe I would have liked to stay for another year or two, but I try not to think about that anymore.”
Silva scored 11 goals and bagged four assists in 32 appearances with Anderlecht.
The Porto academy graduate now counts four goals and one assist in 11 games with PSV
