Andy Keogh has penned a two-year contract extension at Wolves which will secure his future at the club until the summer of 2012.
The Republic of Ireland forward arrived at Molineux from Scunthorpe in January 2007, but with his deal due to expire next year, the Championship league leaders have moved to tie him down for a further two seasons.
Manager Mick McCarthy is delighted to have kept hold of the 22-year-old and told the club's official website: "From stepping in the door just over two years ago, Andy has had a huge impact for us."
He added: "He's a striker but he's also played wide left and wide right when required as good, if not better, than anyone else and always puts a real shift in.
"There's always been interest in Andy from other clubs and all the managers I speak to like him. There have been a couple of occasions where he's had a rocky relationship with the supporters and perhaps hasn't quite been appreciated for all the graft he puts in.
"But all he ever wanted to do when he sat down in the office with me was to sign and stay on here. He loves it at Wolves and wants to play for this club and I think that's fantastic."
