Raul Jimenez is staying put.

The Mexican international can now call Molineux his permanent home after Wolves exercised an option in the striker's loan deal on Thursday, securing the 27-year-old with a club-record £30-million move from Benfica.

Jimenez's new contract with Wolves will run until 2023, while the fee was reported by BBC Sport.

The 71-time capped El Tri forward has impressed this season since joining the Premier League returnees on loan in the summer, bagging a club-high 12 league goals to go with seven assists.

"I like it very much here. I'm enjoying the team and how I play. It feels very good to be here," Jimenez said last week after winning Man of the Match honors in his side's FA Cup quarterfinal dismissal of Manchester United. "I was looking for this sort of feeling since I arrived in Europe, to have this confidence and the games."

Jimenez's fee surpasses the £18 million that Wolves paid to sign winger Adama Traore from Middlesbrough a year ago.
