Wolves: Fresh update on Conor Coady's Molineux future

It would be a massive surprise if Wolves consider selling Conor Coady this summer, according to transfer insider Dean Jones.

The £22.5m-rated centre back has been a key part of Wolves’ success in recent years but has been linked with a shock move away from Molineux.

What’s the latest news involving Coady?

Last summer, Tottenham, who had just appointed ex-Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo as manager, had opened preliminary talks with the England defender, although nothing materialised, and he ended up staying in the Midlands.

However, TEAMtalk believe that Everton, who were also linked with Coady when Nuno was being touted as a potential replacement for Carlo Ancelotti, remain keen on the 29-year-old.

What is the nickname of Wolverhampton Wanderers?

Everton are enduring a wretched season at the back, conceding 52 goals in their 30 top-flight games, which has seen them slip into a relegation battle, meaning they are hoping to strengthen defensively in the summer window, with Coady one of their targets.

But the 311-game ace only signed a new deal at Wolves in September 2020 and has more than three years left on that contract. Therefore, the report has described any possible deal as ‘difficult’ and Jones would be “absolutely amazed” if he was sold.

What did Jones say about Coady?

He told GIVEMESPORT: “He’s the guy that has held them up and got them through tough moments on and off the pitch, he’s so valuable to them, so I would be absolutely amazed if they even consider selling him in the summer.”

How has Coady performed this season?

Following on from a difficult final campaign under Nuno, Coady has performed impressively under the guidance of Bruno Lage to help Wolves emerge as European contenders once again.

Not only is Coady enjoying his most prolific goalscoring campaign as a Wolves player, netting three times, including a crucial recent winner at Everton last month, but he’s helped the team keep 11 clean sheets, which puts them behind only the current top five in that category.

Meanwhile, according to Who Scored, Coady averages 3.5 clearances per game, which is the third-best in the Wolves squad, while his passing success rate (89.5 per cent) is bettered only by youngster Luke Cundle, proving how reliable he remains both in and out of possession.

Overall, it’s been another productive campaign for the centre-back, who remains key for the club moving forward, and he’s not a player they are likely to consider selling.
