Wolverhampton Wanderers manager Nuno Espirito Santo is confident the club have no case to answer with regards to allegations about agent Jorge Mendes.

BT Sport write that German newspaper Der Spiegel claim Mendes’s relationship with Wolves owners Fosun International breaks the laws of the game.

They allege that Fosun owns a 15% stake in Mendes’ agency Gestifute, who represent high calibre clients such as Jose Mourinho and Cristiano Ronaldo.

Gestifute also manage Espirito Santo and Wolves stars such as Helder Costa, Ruben Neves and Diogo Jota.

FA rules state that agents are not allowed to influence a clubs business decisions, with Football Leeks insistent he has a more influential role than just an advisor.

Asked if Wolves had done anything wrong, Nuno said:

I am totally convinced, totally. There is no subject, no issue on that. Let’s wait and see but I am totally convinced. What is important is that I don’t care about that. I don’t focus on that and I don’t give any importance to it. I think Football Leaks is always bringing things out and for me it is not important.

The English Football League were alerted to the situation by several Championship clubs earlier this year but found no wrong-doing.
