Wolverhampton Wanderers are eyeing the Wales goalkeeping coach, Tony Roberts.

The Daily Mail have reported the club are looking to bring the 51-year-old to Molineux this summer.

Roberts used to play professionally with QPR amongst others and has been in his current role since 2016.

He also worked with Birmingham City last season.

Apparently, such a move would potentially help Wolves to sign Danny Ward.

The 28-year-old has been in superb form at Euro 2020, and obviously been working with Roberts closely.

He hasn’t yet made an appearance due to the undisputed status of Kasper Schmeichel.


The claim comes amid continued speculation over the future of Rui Patricio.

AS Roma are said to want the Portugal number one, but there was a claim yesterday suggesting the move had fallen through.

Journalist Fabrizio Romano today said that talks were still ongoing.

Ward would be a good back-up

If John Ruddy does not extend his contract then Ward would be a good addition.

If Patricio departs and Ruddy stays, Jose Sa is probably the man Wolves should be going for.
