Wolves midfielder Kevin Foley has signed a new improved four-year contract extension at Molineux.

The 28 year old had two years remaining on his previous deal and has now committed himself to Mick McCarthy’s side until 2015.

Foley is the latest Wolves player to commit himself to the club and follows the decision of captain Karl Henry and defender Richard Stearman who also recently signed new long-term deals.

Since joining the Premiership side four years from Luton Foley has made 161 appearances for the club and his ability to play in midfielder or right back has made him a key component of McCarthy’s team.

Foley said: “The new contract extends my future here by four years and I was really happy the club wanted to do that.

“I’ve spent four years here now – two in the Championship and two in the Premier League – and feel like I’ve made good progress. That’s something I want to continue.

“A lot of the lads have been happy to commit their futures and I think the key to that is how well everyone gets on and with the management staff as well.

“It’s a team game and nobody ever feels left out even if they are not playing.”

Wolves manager Mick McCarthy said: “I’m delighted that Foles has signed a new contract.

“He is another of those players who joined us in the Championship, helped the team win promotion and has continued to develop year after year.

“He can always be relied upon for the consistent levels of his performances, and it’s great to have another key member of our squad commit his long term future to the Club.”
