Wolves captain Karl Henry and defender Richard Stearman have both signed new deals at Molineux. Club captain Henry, who has been at Wolves since 2006, has signed a contract extension, which increases his deal until 2014 and centre half Stearman also has extended his contract until 2014, after a string of impressive performances.
Wolves manager Mick McCarthy is delighted with the contract extensions of two of his side’s key players and stated: ‘I am delighted that both players have signed new and extended deals. Karl has been here with me right from the start and has always played a key role for us. Like Karl, Stears came in and helped us get promoted and has since gone on and improved.’
The 28 year old Henry joined Wolves in the summer of 2006 for a fee of £100,000 and has played a pivotal role in Wolves’ push to the Premiership and their survival last season. McCarthy said of his captain: ‘His leadership qualities on and off the pitch have seen him become club captain and he has adapted really well to playing in the Premier League’.
Richard Stearman joined the Molineux outfit in 2008 from Championship side Leicester City for an undisclosed fee and has accompanied Henry in providing a solid core at Wolves along with Irish striker Kevin Doyle. McCarthy admires his central defender and said about the 23 year old: ‘He is a young defender who will continue to develop and, having fought his way into the team this season, has maintained a good level of performance.’
