BBC pundit Danny Higginbotham has heaped praise on Wolves defender and captain Conor Coady who he says will be “sure to make a big impact in Premier League next season”.

Coady has played every game for Wolves in the Championship this season, bar one he missed for a red card.

And he’s made his new position at centre-back his own under Nuno Espirito Santo with a string of highly impressive performances.

Higginbotham, a regular on the BBC’s Football Focus, has been blown away by the 24-year-old and has predicted him to go on and do big things in the Premier League next season.

Higginbotham believes that Wolves will “inevitably” get promoted this season and has said that Coady will make a “big impact” in the British top flight.

Writing in his column in the Sun Higginbotham said, “He is brilliant on the ball. His distribution, short or long, is fantastic.

“I played with him for a bit at Sheffield United when he was coming through and was struck by how bright he was for one so young.

He is an intelligent lad, a good organiser and great reader of the game. As a result, his positioning is top class.”

Wolves and Coady face a stern test on Saturday as they travel to play Fulham in the Championship in the 5.30pm kick-off.

Wolves are 13 points clear of Aston Villa in third and looking good for an autoamtic promotion spot.

Fulham are 17 points behind them in fifth.
