Dates to Remember: When Every Wolves Player's Contract is Due to Expire

With Wolves' return to the Premier League confirmed for next season, their attention will inevitably turn to the transfer market and the state of the current contracts their squad members are on. 


Whilst there aren't many expiring this summer, Wolves will need to begin thinking about which players they want to offer new deals to, and which they want rid of...


* denotes player was on loan at or from Wolves during the 17/18 season.

1. Expiring 30th June 2018


Willy Boly* - One of Wolves' standout players, Boly has been a revelation since arriving at Molineux. The club will look to make his stay in the West Midlands a permanent one after impressing with his defensive prowess and calmness on the ball.


Diogo Jota* - The forward has been one of the best players in the Championship since arriving in England, with Wolves announcing in January that they would be signing him permanently. Although the terms are not yet agreed, Jota's finishing ability and trickery will be invaluable in the Premier League.


Leo Bonatini* - Started the season strongly with a flurry of goals, but slowed down as 2018 began. His role in Nuno's 3-4-3 is arguably more important than his goal contribution though, and Wolves may look to bring him in permanently.


Benik Afobe* - The last minute deadline day acquisition of Afobe raised a few eyebrows, but he has proved crucial in Wolves' successful run in. His natural finishing ability cannot be doubted, but whether Nuno sees a place for the striker in his system next season remains to be seen.


Alfred N'Diaye* - Wolves' midfield has been mainly dominated by Ruben Neves and Romain Saiss but when called upon N'Diaye has done an excellent job in the middle of the park. He offers a more physical presence for the side and has Premier League experience. Wolves may look to sign him on a permanent basis.


Jordan Graham - Talented winger but will find it hard to stake a claim for a place in Nuno's Premier League squad ahead of Jota, Costa and Cavaleiro. Easily good enough for a Championship side looking to challenge for the playoffs.

2. Expiring 30th June 2019

John Ruddy - The 31-year-old has played a crucial role in Wolves' promotion campaign, winning the Championship's Golden Glove award and being named in the PFA Team of the Year. Likely to have his deal extended following a standout campaign.


Barry Douglas - Chief assister for Wolves in 2017/2018, Douglas will be key if the club is to make their stay in the top flight a prolonged one. Expect an extension before his contract runs out.


Carl Ikeme - Cruelly diagnosed with leukaemia before the season began, Ikeme has been involved in a fight far more important than football. Length of contract unlikely to be an issue with Wolves likely to continue supporting Ikeme in any way possible. Get well soon Carl.


Bright Enobakhare - Extremely talented but inconsistent since breaking into the first team. A loan spell beckons before Wolves decide on his future at the club.


Dominic Iorfa* - A talented right back, Iorfa has bags of potential but given Matt Doherty's fantastic form, it would be surprising if Iorfa found his way back into the Wolves side any time soon. Either a loan spell or a permanent move away will be in his immediate future.


Joe Mason* - Followed teammate Jack Price out on loan to the Colorado Rapids for the 2017/18 season. Can do a job in the Championship, but has likely played his last game for the club.

3. Expiring 30th June 2020

Romain Saiss - The Moroccan has endeared himself to the Molineux faithful with his range of passing and ability to break up play. The club will look to extend his contract before it runs out.


Ryan Bennett - Heavily criticised from Norwich fans upon arrival at Wolves, Bennett slotted into Wolves' back three perfectly. Despite a good season, the club will look to strengthen that position in the summer.


Danny Batth - The hometown centre back was unable to force his way into first team plans this season, featuring sparingly. Unlikely to be offered a new deal, meaning a move could be on the horizon sooner rather than later.


Phil Ofosu-Ayeh - Blighted by injury since his arrival, it's difficult to say whether he has a place in this squad. A move away could beckon if he's unable to stay fit.


Will Norris - A talented goalkeeper who will probably be back up goalkeeper next season, the Premier League experience will do him a lot of good. Wolves will offer him a new contract, if only for the fact he has so much potential.


Ben Marshall* - Likely to be moved on in the summer following Wolves' promotion to the Premier League.


Ethan Ebanks-Landell* - Very hit and miss career at Molineux thus far, with impressive loan spells at League One clubs. Likely to seek a move at this level to continue first team development.

4. Expiring 30th June 2021


Ivan Cavaleiro - Will be crucial for Wolves' upcoming Premier League season but with three years remaining on his contract, there's no immediate need to offer him a new one.


Helder Costa - Essentially in the same boat as Cavaleiro, Costa has time to run on his current deal and is an essential first team member. Time will tell whether he can adapt to the Premier League.


Conor Coady - Quick transformation into key centre half has made him indispensable to the club. Rewarded with a new contract in August, Coady looks to have a bright future with the club.


Roderick Miranda - Was a starter at the beginning of the 2017/18 season, but eventually lost his place to Ryan Bennett. Is at the centre of a match fixing scandal back in Portugal, so Wolves may look to sever ties if found guilty.


Matt Doherty - Has been with the club through thick and thin, fulfilling some of his promised potential this season. One to monitor in the next year or so.


Kortney Hause - A centre back or left back, it'll be interesting to see if he's given more of a chance in the Premier League. Certainly has the talent, and if able to show it, Wolves will look to tie him down in the longer term.

5. Expiring 30th June 2022

Ruben Neves - Wolves' standout performer. Is on a long-term contract at Molineux but is already attracting interest from a host of Premier League sides. The club will look to hold onto him whatever the cost, and may reward him with improved terms.


Rafa Mir - Highly thought of, Mir was rumoured to be interesting Real Madrid before signing on at Molineux. Has rarely featured for the Black Country outfit though, with a loan move back to Spain possible.


Morgan Gibbs-White - Relatively unheard of if you aren't a regular at Molineux, but Gibbs-White is an immense talent who has already won the U-17 World Cup with England. He will improve further with age and there's no doubt Wolves will look to keep him at Molineux beyond his current contract.
