However Wolves have a fixed option to sign Jimenez on a permanent deal, and the club are ready to pull the trigger:

Wolves have an option to buy the 27-year-old for a fee of around £30million at the end of Jimenez’s season-long loan deal from Benfica.

It’s an exclusive option and the ball is in Wolves’ court as to whether to make the move a permanent one. A contract and wage structure has already been agreed between the parties.
