It would be a huge surprise if Wolves captain Conor Coady moved away from Molineux this summer, according to ‘transfer journalist Dean Jones.
The Lowdown: Coady a superb servant
The 29-year-old has been a magnificent servant for Wanderers, helping them return to the Premier League and continuing to shine in England’s top division, becoming a nine-time capped England international in the process.
Everton have been linked with a move for the former Liverpool youngster, with the Toffees apparently aiming to pull off a ‘surprise coup’ to sign him – raising some doubt over his Wanderers future.
The Latest: Expert shocked by potential exit
Speaking to Give Me Sport, Jones admitted he would be shocked if Coady traded Molineux for Goodison Park ahead of next season:
“He’s the guy that has held them up and got them through tough moments on and off the pitch, he’s so valuable to them, so I would be absolutely amazed if they even consider selling him in the summer.”
The Verdict: Would be a big surprise
Coady has been a rock at the heart of Wolves’ defence for so long and it would be an almighty blow to lose him at the peak of his powers.
Not only is the Englishman an outstanding leader for Lage’s men but he is also an excellent footballer, averaging a 93.3% pass completion rate in the Carabao Cup this season.
Coady’s current Wolves deal doesn’t expire until 2025, with his recent extension in September 2020 suggesting he is more than happy at the club, so it would be a major shock if he decided Everton were the better option this summer.
