Deal done as enforcer agrees terms with Wolves

By Matt Farr

Wolverhampton Wanderers midfielder Lee Evans has signed a new long-term deal at Molineux, it has been confirmed.

The Championship club revealed on their official Twitter account on Monday afternoon that the 22-year-old had signed a new three-and-a-half-year deal, which will keep him at the club until 2020.

Central midfield enforcer Evans spent last season on loan at League One outfit Bradford, but since returning to Wolves at the start of the season, manager Paul Lambert has been impressed by his performances.

The former Wales Under-21 international has made 10 appearances for Wolves in all competitions this season, and has featured in five of the club’s last six games since he returned from a groin injury.

Molineux chief Lambert is keen to build for the future, having arrived at the club during a troublesome patch that saw them 19th in the league.

The club have since moved up just one place to 18th, but Lambert is still in the process of integrating his ideas on the first-team squad, and that includes tying down one of the club’s brightest young talents in Evans.

Evans signed his first professional deal with Wolves in January 2013, but was forced to wait until August before he made his debut for the club, an opportunity handed to him by then-manager Kenny Jackett.
