Captain, Conor Coady is a massive influence on and off the pitch at Molineux, and has given the club seven years of loyal service.
Skipper since the club’s return to the Premier League, Coady has transformed from a midfielder to an established centre back who has become a regular members of Gareth Southgate’s England squad.
His career began at the Liverpool academy as a 12-year-old, and he went on to captain the under-21 side and make two senior appearances for the Merseyside club against Anzhi Makhachkala and Fulham.
While at Anfield, the youngster received his first taste of international football with England, all the way up to under-20 level – seven years before his first senior call-up.
It was a season-long loan at Sheffield United which whetted Coady’s appetite for regular football and that’s what he got when signing for Huddersfield Town on a permanent basis, and at Wolves following his 2015 move.
After two years in the old gold midfield, Coady made the switch to defence in the summer of 2017 under Nuno Espirito Santo and helped Wolves to 24 Championship clean sheets on their way to the league title in 2017/18.
Enjoying his first crack at the Premier League, Coady led Wolves to two seventh placed finishes, an FA Cup semi-final and the Europa League quarter-final.
That led to a first senior England call-up and a first international goal against Wales, which helped him become a member of Southgate’s squad which finished runners up at Euro 2020.
A first Premier League goal against Manchester City in March 2021 got the ball rolling in front of goal back at Wolves, and the defender added four big goals to his collection the next campaign, including a winner at Everton and late equaliser at Chelsea.
