Wolves promoted to Premier League after Fulham held

Wolves promoted to Premier League after Fulham held

Wolverhamptons Wanderers have been promoted to the Premier League after Brentford struck late to draw at Fulham on Saturday.

Nuno Espirito Santo's side have occupied the top spot in the Championship table since November and despite a poor run of results at the turn of the year, they still need only four points to be crowned champions.

Wolves need a maximum of four points to go up as champions, and it looks inevitable as they now have a 1-0 half time lead over Birmingham in the Championship's early kickoff.

The football world has known for months now that Wolves are heading back to the Premier League and it was finally confirmed on Saturday evening.

Wolves fans celebrate at Molineux.

Wolves have won 28 of their 42 league games this term to seal a return to the top flight after a six-season absence.

"What he has brought in has been fantastic", Dalrymple told Sky Sports.

Their success is not without controversy, however, following their tie-up with Portuguese super-agent Jorge Mendes.

WOLVES XI: Ruddy, Bennett, Coady, Boly, Doherty, Neves, Saiss, Douglas, Helder Costa, Ivan Cavaleiro, Jota.

In 2015, Mendes agreed to sell a minority share of his firm to a subsidiary of Fosun International, the Chinese company that has owned Wolves since July 2016.

Rival Championship clubs were unhappy about the relationship, with Leeds United chairman Andrea Radrizzani saying Wolves' transfer policy was "not legal and fair".
