The summer signing came on as a substitute and scored to hand his side their first league win of the season
Despite his match-winning performance against West Ham United, Adama Traore still has to adapt at Wolverhampton Wanderers, says Nuno Espirito Santo.

The £18 million record-signing, again, came on as a second-half substitute - his third since arriving the Molineux outfit - against the Hammers, and with the game heading for a goalless stalemate, the winger punished Manuel Pellegrini’s men in stoppage time.

However, the Portuguese gaffer believes the summer recruit is yet the player he wants him to become in his set-up.

“I think he came late [to the club] like everybody knows,” said Espirito Santo, per Express & Star.

“He still has things to do. To adapt himself, the team has to know and recognise him better, knowing what he can give us, which is the moment that he can give us.

“Another player is all about shape of the team when you have different characteristics in the players, the shape stays the same, the game changes.”

Wolves play Burnley in their next Premier League clash.
