Wolves have announced that promising midfielder Luke Cundle has signed a new four-year contract with the club.
Cundle has enjoyed a breakthrough season including a first Premier League start in the recent win at Tottenham.
He has told the club’s official website how pleased he is to have put pen to paper and committed to continuing his development at Molineux.
“I’m delighted to get it signed. I’ve been at Wolves a long time now and I’ve got nothing but good things to say about the club. I’ve enjoyed myself throughout all the age groups. Now, I’ve got to keep working hard and hopefully it’ll continue.
“You don’t think too far ahead when you’re coming through, when you’re younger, you take it year by year, but the first-team has always been my dream and to be in the Premier League. Hopefully now I can kick on and get better.”
“The boss is quite big on the tactical side of the game, so I’m picking up the tactical elements of how he wants to play, and what he wants us to do with and without the ball. He pushes all the players and gives a lot of detail to everyone, so whoever plays, they know what they’re doing.”
Cundle earned plenty of praise online after putting pen to paper, including from England international and Borussia Dortmund midfielder Jude Bellingham.
Bellingham must be something of a role model for Cundle, given how big his reputation is as a developing English central midfielder.
Cundle will be looking to establish himself in the Wolves first team but he may have to be patient over a number of seasons, like Max Kilman was before this campaign.
But the future is bright for Cundle, who looks to be the best talent in the Molineux academy, but there are some other promising prospects too.
