Biography

Wolves' promising goalkeeper Matija Sarkic put pen to paper on a new five-year deal ahead of the 2022/23 Premier League season after he initially signed in July 2020.

The full Montenegro international has already gained wide experience in the game, having spent his youth career with both Anderlecht in Belgium and Aston Villa, before his move to Molineux.

A senior international for Montenegro by that point, Sarkic took his cap tally from one to five last season, while flourishing on loan at Birmingham City in the Championship, having already impressed at League One level with Shrewsbury Town across the 2020/21 campaign.

At St Andrew's, Sarkic excelled and, despite missing half of the season through injury, went on to be named Supporters’ Player of the Season, after keeping ten clean sheets in his 23 appearances across the West Midlands.

Following the departure of John Ruddy in summer 2022, Sarkic committed his long-term future to Wolves and will remain at Molineux as part of Bruno Lage’s first-team squad for the 2022/23 Premier League season where he will provide competition to Jose Sa.
