Jota relaxed over lack of new arrivals

1st February 2019, 14:13 by Gareth Freeman

Wolves star Diogo Jota says the fact no new faces arrived in the January window shows the strength in the squad at Molineux.

Jonny Otto joined the club on a permanent basis from Atletico Madrid on deadline day after spending the first-half of the season on loan at the club.

Jota is delighted the Spain international is now signed on for the long-term and he has no concerns over the fact Wolves opted not to add to their first-team squad in the winter window.

"Jonny’s a great guy, he’s established well on the team and although his English isn’t perfect, he’s getting there," he told the club's official website.

"He can reach really far in his career, he has the strong mentality, strong physicality, so he has everything.

"He’s strong – very strong for a small guy – very hard to beat in one-vs-ones, and he’s doing very well for us this season; on the right or on the left, so I think he’s a great signing for us.

"When you don’t have to do January movements it means that you are well. I think when you are not, you need to do something, and someone comes in or someone goes out.

"It’s a good thing that we are keeping the same from the beginning until the end of the season."
