England U21s’ selection never in doubt for Wolves man – Aidy

Wolves midfielder Morgan Gibbs-White’s elevation to England Under-21s was never in doubt, according to the man who promoted him. The 19-year-old has earned his first call-up to Aidy Boothroyd’s squad for this summer’s European Championships in Italy and San Marino next month, from June 16-30.

Raul looking for more with Wolves

Raul Jimenez has set his sights even higher next season – for himself and for Wolves. The soon-to-be £32m club record signing was a huge success in his first campaign in England, top-scoring with 17 goals in all competitions. His 13 goals in the Premier League made him Wolves’ record scorer in the remodelled top flight in a season as Wolves finished seventh, their highest position for 39 years. Wolves have already targeted Albion striker and Newcastle player of the year Salomon Rondon to compete with 28-year-old Jimenez next season.
