SUPER-AGENT Jorge Mendes is on the look-out for a new Premier League club for Nuno Espirito Santo.
The Wolves boss, 46, extended his contract with the club in September until 2023.

Nuno put pen to paper on the deal after leading the Molineux club to Premier League promotion and European football since joining in 2017.
But SunSport understands Mendes is actively searching for a change of scenery for his client – whose reputation has soared over the past few seasons.
Nuno is keen to remain in England’s top-flight, and Mendes was in talks with Arsenal over a potential switch.
However, Mikel Arteta’s recent resurgence and upturn in results saw those talks scuppered.
LaLiga would also be an option after working with Valencia in the 2014-15 campaign.
Any potential new team would have to boast European football.
Nuno remains content with his situation at Wolves, despite their drop in form this season.
But Mendes is aware of Nuno’s meteoric rise in status as a manager.
