Some Wolves fans and former players have called on the club to offer a contract extension to midfielder Joao Moutinho, whose current deal expires at the end of this season.
Wolves Bite reported that former Molineux player Kenny Hibbitt was full of praise for the 33-year-old, saying: “You don’t get rid of players who are still giving performances like he is,” with the article also claiming that “some fans are urging the club to tie him down to a new deal”.
From what you've all been saying about a new deal for Joao Moutinho, you could say the man is batting from a position of strength. Can't say I'm surprised though.

Moutinho, a European Championships winner with Portugal and recipient of 116 caps, came to Wolves from Monaco in July 2018 and has played in all but two of the club’s matches since then. Also, he was named as Wolves Player of the Year for 2018/19 by the club’s fans, as reported by the Express & Star.
These Wolves fans on Twitter are hoping that Moutinho will stay at Molineux for another while yet:
I would pay him whatever he wants. We know he’s the best and so does he. Get it done @Wolves
