Scott Sellars reacts after Toti Gomes signs new deal with Wolves

Defender Toti Gomes has signed a new deal with Wolves.

The 23-year-old has put pen to paper on shiny new contract that will take him up to the summer of 2027.

It is very much a reward from the club for a player who has emerged as a new first-team squad option in 2022.

Gomes had spent 18 months on loan at Swiss side Grasshoppers, and was recalled by Wolves in January.

The decision to do that was due to Romain Saiss heading off to AFCON with Morocco.

Gomes may have returned to from his loan spell early, but few really expected him to be the man to replace Saiss in the backline.

But Bruno Lage put his faith in the youngster, starting him for the first time against Southampton.

He then kept his place for the following games against Brentford and Norwich City.

It’s great news for the club, with Toti a player with big potential. Speaking about the news, technical director Scott Sellars said: “This is a reward for Toti for the hard work he’s put in while at the club, especially while on loan at Grasshoppers.

“He’s worked very hard on his football and has really developed, then he got the opportunity to come to the club full time and has been excellent in everything he does.

“January was the first time he’d been to the club. We’d watched him out on loan and admired what he was doing, so we gave him the opportunity to come back here in January, and from minute one he showed he’s a professional and dedicated young man who works hard on his football.

Great news for Wolves as Toti Gomes pens new contract

This is really positive news for Wolves.

Gomes is someone with a really bright future who could genuinely be a player we soon see a lot more of in the starting XI.

He looked great in the few appearances he made for the club earlier this year.

It’s now just about working hard for Gomes, as he has been doing since he returned to the club and even before with Grasshoppers.

It sounds very much as though he has an impressive work ethic. That will stand him in very good stead with Lage, who prides himself on that very thing.
