Max Kilman has an uncertain future at Wolverhampton Wanderers as he’s out of contract in July and has yet to be offered a new deal. The 22-year-old is low down the pecking order under Nuno Espirito Santo and has struggled for playing time as a result.
But despite Kilman being on the periphery at Molineux, some fans still want to keep him past 2020. The centre-back made 10 appearances in all competitions this season and has been on the losing team only twice, so he’s been a good omen.
Max Kilman, John Ruddy, Phil Ofosu-Ayeh, Jordan Graham, Bright Enobakhare and Sylvain Deslandes are all out of contract in the summer.

Kilman 100%. Anyone who disagrees is wrong. Maybe ruddy. If not we need to sign a backup gk

Kilman has Conor Coady, Willy Bony, Ryan Bennett, Leander Dendoncker and Romain Saiss for competition, but he’s still made the matchday squad in Wolves’ last 18 Premier League games, four Europa League outings and every domestic cup clash.
With Dendoncker and Saiss being more natural midfielders, it would benefit Nuno to keep Kilman as a backup in defence. The 22-year-old has spent 18 months at Molineux after joining from Maidenhead, but it remains to be seen if his services will be retained for another campaign.
Nevertheless, fans have made their decision.
