Wolves midfielder Karl Henry has signed a new four-year contract with the npower Championship club.

Wolverhampton-born Henry had two years remaining on his previous deal but has now committed himself to his hometown club until the summer of 2016. Manager Ståle Solbakken is delighted to see the 29-year-old extend his stay at Molineux, particularly in the wake of interest from elsewhere.

"There was interest from a couple of Premier League clubs in Karl so we are pleased that he is staying with us. He wanted to stay, we wanted him to stay, and it is good that the club have added another two years to his contract," Solbakken told the club's official website.
