Wolves: Conor Coady set to finalise Everton loan move later today

Wolves: Conor Coady set to finalise Everton loan move later today -Wolves News

Wolves captain Conor Coady is ‘set to finalise’ his loan move to Premier League rivals Everton later today, according to journalist Pete O’Rourke.

The Lowdown: Seven-year tenure

After arriving at Molineux in 2015 in a £2m deal, Coady has gone on to play a huge role in the Old Gold’s recent success in the English top flight.

During his seven-year stay in the west Midlands, the 29-year-old has made a staggering 317 appearances in a Wolves shirt, with 152 of these coming in the Premier League.

The club captain remained instrumental in Bruno Lage’s defence last season, having demonstrated his reliability as a leader by skippering them in all 38 league games.

The Latest: O’Rourke’s news

With news having emerged of Everton making a move for the Wolves defender, O’Rourke has provided an update on the status of Coady’s seemingly imminent Molineux departure.

Taking to Twitter on Monday morning, the journalist claimed: “Conor Coady had his medical at Everton on Sunday and is set to finalise his loan move from Wolves later today. #EFC #wwfc”

Only the biggest Wolves fan will get 100% on this Bruno Lage quiz! First up, where did he manage before Molineux?

The Verdict: Huge loss

Coady’s statistics alone demonstrate his importance to Wolves’ defence. During the 2021/22 season, the centre-back averaged 3.7 clearances and 1.1 blocks per game (via WhoScored), placing him second and first respectively for those metrics among Lage’s squad.

Will Coady be a big loss for Wolves?

Yes

Yes

No

No

However, his absence will be most felt in the Molineux dressing room and on the training pitch. The Wolves manager has always spoken highly of the club captain and his ability to lead the team, having hailed him as ‘one of the best’ skippers around.

Therefore, whilst Coady’s presence will certainly be missed on the pitch, his leadership at the club means that his absence will leave a large void in Lage’s squad, with the 29-year-old’s successor as captain having a tough act to follow.
