John Ruddy signs new Wolverhampton Wanderers contract

Wolverhampton Wanderers announce that goalkeeper John Ruddy has signed a new two-year contract at Molineux.

Wolverhampton Wanderers goalkeeper John Ruddy has signed a new two-year contract.

Ruddy joined Wolves on a free transfer last summer, and the stopper made 45 appearances as the West Midlands outfit won the Championship title.

The 31-year-old has since been relegated to second choice after the arrival of Rui Patricio, but Wolves have announced that the Englishman has extended his stay at Molineux.

Sporting director Kevin Thelwell told the club's official website: "John was pivotal to our promotion campaign last season, and his clean sheets and consistent performances rightly earned him a spot in the Championship team of the year.

"With Carl [Ikeme]'s diagnosis a big blow to everyone at the club last summer, John signed for us under difficult circumstances, but his professionalism was evident throughout and his experience of promotion from the Championship with Norwich invaluable.

"John quickly became a well respected member of Nuno's squad and we are delighted that he has signed a new deal."

Ruddy's one appearance this season came in the 2-0 win at Sheffield Wednesday in the EFL Cup on Tuesday night.
