Standing to be allowed on Wolves’ South Bank again

Wolves’ famous South Bank is to return to a ‘standing terrace’ for next season for the first time in 26 years. All seats in the South Bank will be replaced with a barrier seating solution as Wolves are set to become the first Premier League club to install seats incorporating barriers in an existing stadium. It means fans in the most vocal part of Molineux can ‘officially’ stand again in the section of the ground where it has proved the trickiest to keep supporters seated. Managing director Laurie Dalrymple said: “After consultation with South Bank season ticket holders and discussions…

Shi: Wolves to continue ‘try before buy’ if they can

Chairman Jeff Shi says Wolves will continue their ‘try before you buy’ policy if it’s the right deal for them. Wolves have enjoyed huge success with loan deals that have turned into permanent signings over the last two years, as well as helping with Financial Fair Play. Willy Boly, Diogo Jota, Raul Jimenez, Leander Dendoncker, Jonny Otto and Ruben Vinagre are the six biggest examples of temporary signings impressing before signing for the club full-time. Jota was the club’s 18-goal top scorer last season when Wolves raced to the Championship title before signing for £14m from Atletico Madrid last summer,…

Still work to be done for Wolves players – Nuno

Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo admits the end of the season won’t be a time for his players to down tools totally. The Premier League season finished on Sunday with Wolves signing off with a 2-0 defeat against Liverpool at Anfield to finish seventh, the club’s highest placing for 39 years when they were sixth. But there will not be much time to rest as the club’s sizeable international contingent will be involved in various tournaments over the summer. There’s likely to be 10 players called up to play for their countries next month. Head coach Nuno said: “We never…

Nuno: I got as much out of Wolves beating Cardiff as toppling top six

Nuno Espirito Santo insists beating relegated Cardiff meant as much to him as Euro conquerors Wolves toppling any of the top six this season. His side head to Anfield hoping to wreck Liverpool’s dreams of ending their 29-year wait for the title on Sunday. Wolves have relished taking on the top teams this season, registering 16 points against them with wins against all four European finalists, plus Manchester United twice and a draw against leaders Manchester City. But three points is the same reward for beating City as it would have been Huddersfield and Nuno says there is no extra…

Klopp says Wolves are ‘pretty special’ and lauds Nuno

Jurgen Klopp has thrown the Anfield welcome mat down to Wolves ahead of the Premier League title decider. The Liverpool manager says Wolves’ achievements are ‘pretty special’ while he reckons head coach Nuno Espirito Santo is doing an ‘incredible’ job.

‘Wolves have signed world class players’ – Jonny

  Jonny Otto believes Wolves have signed world class players and says they are aiming to challenge for a top-six place next season.   The Spain international signed permanently for a then club-record equalling £18m fee in January after arriving on a season-long loan last summer from Atletico Madrid.   Jonny says he was persuaded to join Wolves because of the club’s ambition, after leaving Atletico without playing a single game for them following his £18m permanent move from Celta Vigo in January. As initially a loan capture last summer, he was one of several big signings along with established…
