Conor Coady has this afternoon put pen to paper on a new deal at Wolverhampton Wanderers.

The player has a year remaining on his existing deal and agreement has now been struck on a new four year deal tying him to the Molineux until the summer of 2021.

Having come through Liverpool’s Academy set up, he joined Wolves from Huddersfield Town back in 2015 and he now has 93 appearances to his name in our shirt, and during that time he’s served as skipper in the absence of Danny Batth and despite naturally being a central midfielder, his versatility has seen him used as right back on several occasions as well as in the centre of a back three under Nuno Espirito Santo.

Speaking to the Official Website briefly, our head coach said of his extension.

‘It is important for everybody that Conor has signed a new contract. It is about the way we see things, and we know that since we started the players that were already here have been enjoying it. Conor has been a top professional since day one, and he always gives 100 per cent in each moment of his work. He has been fantastic this season in helping the team and this new contract is well deserved and recognition for all of his hard work.’

Speaking himself, 24 year old Coady explained.

‘It`s not been weighing on my mind at all, it`s something that I wanted to get done as quick as possible. It hasn`t taken long, it`s something that I wanted to get to and I can just focus on playing football. I wanted to sign here and I wanted to commit here, now that I`ve done that I`m over the moon. I`ve looked at it in terms of there being a lot of change and I wanted to be part of that change – I want to be part of everything that`s going on at this club.’

He went on to say.

‘There are some very talented individuals that have come to the club, you`ve seen the manager come in from Porto and I wanted to learn from him it`s as simple as that. He`s brought in all his own staff and all of them have been fantastic with every single one of the boys. It was something that I wanted to be a part of and it was up to me to make myself a part of that – up to now it`s been going quite well but I`d like to think I can improve a lot more now and hopefully keep helping the team. Up to now, we`ve done that this season but I think it`s just about improving. I`ve got a lot more experience by playing games in the Championship for this club and I know what it means to play for this football club now. It`s a huge club and like I said to commit my future to it is massive for me.’

He went on to add that promotion was still the all important aim.

‘I came here with a goal in mind, and I`ve not done that yet. I came here two years ago wanting to get out of the league with this football club – we`ve not been good enough up to now, it`s as simple as that. I think everybody craves wanting to get out of this league and I`m no different. I want to keep on helping this club move forward and hopefully we can keep on improving this season make it a season to remember.’
