Wolverhampton Wanderers are set to open talks with captain Conor Coady over a new contract, according to the Telegraph.
The 25-year-old has started all but one of the club’s 22 Premier League matches this season and has impressed alongside Willy Boly and Ryan Bennett in the back three.
In fact, his form has caught the eye of England manager Gareth Southgate, who was at Molineux to watch him in the FA Cup third round defeat to Liverpool.
The centre-back could receive his first senior England call-up for March’s European Championship qualifiers with the Czech Republic and Montenegro.
Coady moved to Molineux from Huddersfield Town in the summer of 2015, with Wolves reportedly paying just £2m for his services.
Since then he has established himself as a fan favourite for his application and passion for the club, as well as his evident playing ability.
The ex-Liverpool youth player saw his wage increase to £36,000 per week after promotion to the top flight in the summer, and he can expect a further boost in his new terms.
His current deal doesn’t expire until the summer of 2021, but Wolves are keen to secure his long-term future in case any of the ‘big six’ take a fancy to the player in the coming weeks/months.
