Agbonlahor: 'Big' chance Conor Coady could quit Everton after confirmed news

Conor Coady may want to leave Everton at the end of his loan and return to Wolves under a new manager, according to Gabby Agbonlahor.

Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the ex-Aston Villa and England attacker delivered his verdict after Bruno Lage was sacked by Wolves at the weekend (2 October).

Lage let the long-standing Wolves captain join Everton on a season-long loan in the summer as he did not feel he could fit into his new look back-four.

The 29-year-old had been a mainstay in a back five at Molineux but has proven that he can play alongside just one partner at Everton.

The Blues have the best defensive record in the league after conceding just seven goals and the England international has also already captained the club.

The Liverpool Echo reported on Monday (3 October) that the is no recall clause in Coady’s loan and Everton have the option to make the deal permanent next summer.

Asked whether Coady could return to Wolves, Agbonlahor told Football Insider correspondent Connor Whitley: “I think there could be a big chance of that.

“If a new manager comes in, he might be thinking ‘Hang on a second, I want this guy back’.

“If it’s in the contract then maybe you haven’t seen the last of Conor Coady at Wolves.”

Coady has played 317 times across all competitions for Wolves and his contract there does not expire until the summer of 2025.

The Liverpool-born defender is the last remaining player from the side that won the Championship in the 2017-18 season still on the books at Molineux.
