Ikeme Extends Wolves Stay

By Ikenga Chronicles December 31, 2016
Super Eagles  goalkeeper Carl Ikeme has agreed to  stay with the English Championship side Wolverhampton Wanderers until 2019.
This was announced by the club on its website stating that Ikeme’s current deal expires at the end of the season but the club has agreed an extra two ‎and a half year for the stopper.
The 30-year-old has been at Wolves since he was 15 years old, was going on loan to several clubs until he became the club’s first choice three seasons ago.
“Wolves are delighted to announce that keeper Carl Ikeme has signed a new two-and-a-half year contract, with a further year’s option in the club’s favour” the club wrote.
Wolves head coach Paul Lambert said. ‎ “I think it is important to get players like Carl Ikeme signed up to a new deal,”
 “He is an experienced member of the team. He knows exactly what the club is about and if you get a core of lads like that then they can look after the dressing room as well. Carl has been terrific since I arrived and I think this is a big signing for the club.”
“I remember coming here with Blackburn last season and he made some incredible saves. He is a big presence, a great lad and a top goalkeeper.”
Ikeme in his response said  “There have been discussions going on for a while and I am delighted to get it sorted. I can concentrate on the rest of the season now and my future here at Wolves. This is my club, and I always wanted to stay,”
Ikeme has made 192 appearances for the club in all competitions and made  his international debut against Tanzania in September 2015 keeping a clean sheet as Nigeria played out a goalless draw against the Taifa Stars in a 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier.
