Kilman commits future to Wolves

Wolves defender Maximilian Kilman has committed his long-term future to the club, signing a new contact until 2025.

Since his arrival in 2018, the defender has grown into a valued member of Nuno Espirito Santo’s group and has impressed in recent back-to-back Premier League victories.

The former Maidenhead United man initially joined the club’s under-23 set-up, but within a matter of months had been promoted to the first-team, ahead of making his debut as a late substitute against Fulham in May 2019.

That appearance saw Kilman become the first player to move directly from non-league to the Premier League, with no loans, since Chris Smalling 11 years earlier.

Opportunities followed last term for the England futsal international, who played 11 times across four competitions, including at Anfield in the Premier League and Espanyol in the last 32 of the Europa League.

Composed performances have continued into the current season and, on the left side of the defence, Kilman helped Wolves to clean sheets and victories over Fulham and Leeds United, and was named Man of the Match at Elland Road.

Now, he follows Conor Coady and Raul Jimenez by signing a new long-term contract at Molineux.
