Wolves: TEAMtalk drops Conor Coady exit claim

Wolves: TEAMtalk drops Conor Coady exit claim -Wolves News

According to TEAMtalk, Everton are eyeing a summer transfer move for Wolves defender Conor Coady. 

The lowdown: Wolves stalwart

Signed from Huddersfield Town in 2015 for just £2m (BBC), the 29-year-old has established himself as a crucial part of the setup at Molineux.

An integral part of Nuno Espirito Santo’s side which earned promotion back to the Premier League in 2017/18, the Liverpudlian ace played every minute in two consecutive top-flight campaigns under the Portuguese manager.

Since the arrival of Bruno Lage, the talismanic leader has seen no decline in importance in the Midlands, as the 45-year-old recently admitted to being ‘proud’ to call Coady his captain.

The latest: Everton eye ambitious swoop for Coady

As per the report from TEAMtalk, relegation-threatened Everton are believed to be considering a move for the England international.

It’s claimed that the Merseyside club could ‘make a move’ for the boyhood Liverpool fan in the summer, albeit that the switch is said to be ‘laced with difficulties’ such as Coady’s allegiances.

Who scored Wolves' first Premier League goal of the season, barring own goals?

However, the report suggests that the recent appointment of ex-Wolves recruitment chief Kevin Thelwell as sporting director at Goodison Park may persuade the nine-cap defender to head to Everton.

The verdict: Wolves must say no

Put frankly, this is not a move that Wolves should even entertain.

With Coady valued at £22.5m and under contract until 2025 (Transfermarkt), there is certainly no immediate requirement for the Old Gold to resolve the ever-reliable defender’s future.

What position will Wolves finish in the Premier League this season?

So far this season, the man once hailed as ‘outstanding’ by Garth Crooks has earned an impressive 7.03 Sofascore rating from 31 Premier League outings, keeping 11 clean sheets, making 3.5 clearances per game and winning 56% of his aerial duels in the process.

That is further evidence of Coady’s importance at Molineux and explains why they must be firm in telling Everton to look elsewhere if they want to strengthen their defensive ranks.
