Keen To Keep Trio

Wolves to talk to senior trio

Kenny Jackett says Wolves are poised for talks with three senior players who are heading into the final year of their contracts.

Three of the club’s longest serving players – keeper Carl Ikeme, defender and captain Danny Batth, and midfielder Dave Edwards – have 12 months remaining of their existing deals.

And the Head Coach says all three are players he is keen to keep at Molineux.

“Now we are all back there will be discussions,” says Jackett.

“Jez (Moxey) will be speaking to all three players.

“They are players we are keen to keep and those three are very established at the club.

“They all have futures at the club, definitely.”

Ikeme, who turned 30 this summer, came through the Academy ranks at Wolves and has firmly established himself as the number one goalkeeping choice in recent years.

He is now within sight of making 200 first team appearances for the club.

Dave Edwards, still away with the Wales squad ahead of Wednesday’s Euro 2016 semi final against Portugal, arrived at Wolves from Luton in January, 2007.

Also 30, he has made 255 appearances since arriving at Molineux, scoring 34 goals.

Danny Batth has made 150 appearances for Wolves, and scored 10 goals, since breaking into the team where he has also established himself as captain.

He has been with Wolves since the age of 10 when he was first recruited by the Academy.
