Louie Moulden eyeing new Wolves contract, but says talks are yet to open

Wolves goalkeeper Louie Moulden is hopeful of signing a new contract.

The youngster has been speaking about the 2022/23 season so far at Solihull Moors, where he is on loan for the season.

Moulden is spending the season at the ARMCO Arena, in a bid to get some valuable minutes under his belt.

So far this season, the 20-year-old has made 16 appearances in the National League, and a further one in the FA Cup.

He started the season as the first-choice over the injured Ryan Boot.

Moulden has been looking to kick on, after enjoying a stint with Ebbsfleet United last season.

It is an important time for Moulden’s development, having caught the eye in Wolves’ youth academy after signing for Wolves in the summer of 2021.

Wolves officials will be pleased at how much he’s featured so far.

Not long after signing for Wolves from Manchester City, Moulden spoke of his ambition to play every week at Molineux (via Shropshire Star). He saw the likes of Morgan Gibbs-White and Maximilian Kilman getting chances and was keen to also make his mark.

But he was realistic, and knew that he had plenty of work to do before making that step up.

Moulden still dreams of playing for the Wolves first-team, and has said that he would love to sign a new contract with the club.

His current deal expires next summer, and Moulden says talks with the club are yet to commence.

He said (Express & Star): “At the moment we haven’t discussed anything, but it’s obviously something I’d love to get sorted.

“I love the club. I’ve loved it from the minute I came.

“But the main focus from the club at the moment is to get me playing. Maybe in January we can sit down, but if I keep playing it’ll take care of itself.”

Moulden has had plenty of minutes so far this season, but it might be that he now doesn’t play as much.

Boot is no longer injured, and Moulden hasn’t actually played for Solihull Moors since November 15.

His loan with them ends in January, so discussions will now be taking place about what happens next.

Wolves officials won’t want him warming anyone’s bench, so it will be interesting if they look to facilitate a new move for him.

Hopefully Moulden will not fade into the shadows in the second half of 2022/23, and he’ll get that contract extension offer from Wolves he really wants.
