This article forms part of our What Does The Future Hold series, which is where Football Transfer Tavern takes a look at what potentially lies ahead for a player, manager or club.
Wolves will be glad to have central defender Willy Boly back following his ankle injury, but how long will Nuno Espirito Santo have the Frenchman at his disposal for?
He averages the most interceptions and clearances per league game with 1.9 and 5.4 respectively (via WhoScored). He is also making the joint-second most tackles with 2.7. In Wolves’ squad, only Jonny is recording more with three.
Based on that, you can see why Wolves would not want to lose Boly. As for Boly himself, he has reason to keep this relationship going, too.
Will Willy Boly sign a new contract at Wolves?
Wolves are already playing European football via the Europa League and, just five points behind fourth-placed Chelsea, could be competing in the Champions League in the near future.
Simply put, in this moment of time, Wolves look capable of matching the lofty ambitions that some players in the squad may hold.
Bearing all of that in mind, it is surely only a matter of time before the Midlands outfit make a serious play to tie Boly down to a new contract. And when they do, given the current environment at the club, you would expect the 29-year-old to commit.
Wolves fans, what does the future hold for Boly? Tell us what you think in the comment section below!
