Conor Coady put pen to paper on a three-year contract – with a further year’s option in Wolves’ favour – after joining the club from Huddersfield Town in the summer of 2015.
In his first Wolves season he made 39 appearances in all competitions.
Coady, who came through the ranks at Liverpool, had enjoyed an impressive 2014/15 season with the Terriers, making 48 appearances, scoring three goals.
One of those, his first for the club, was a spectacular long-range strike which came in the 3-1 win at Molineux in October, 2014.
Coady will be less pleased to recall the own goal notched when the two clubs met again and Wolves won 4-1 at the John Smith’s Stadium four months later.
The affable midfielder also came up against Wolves the previous season during a loan spell with Sheffield United during which he made 50 appearances and scored six goals.
Coady joined Liverpool’s Academy as a 12-year-old coming through to become captain of the club’s Under-21s and twice appearing on the bench in the Barclays Premier League as a teenager during the 2010/11 season.
He eventually made his senior Liverpool debut in November 2012 in a Europa League game at Russian side Anzhi Makhachkala, with his Premier League debut, and second and final senior appearance for the Reds, soon following in a 3-1 win over Fulham at Craven Cottage in May 2013.
Coady has enjoyed plenty of international recognition through the England junior ranks.
Capped all the way through from Under-16 to Under-20 level, one particular highlight came in the Under-17 European Championships in 2010, where Coady captained England to victory, defeating Spain in the final.
