EXCLUSIVE By Pete O’Rourke
Wolves goalkeeper Will Norris has agreed the terms of a new three-year deal at the club, Football Insider sources understands.
Premier League new boys Wolves have decided to reward Norris with a new long-term contract as reward for his progress at Molineux.
Norris provided back-up to No.1 goalkeeper John Ruddy last season as Wolves rompted to the Championship title after joining from Cambridge United last summer.
The 24-year-old featured mainly in cup competitions last season and he did not concede a goal in Wolves’ run in the Carabao Cup as he kept a clean sheet against Premier League champions Manchester City before losing in a penalty shoot-out.
Norris made a total of seven appearances in all competitions for Wolves last season and kept five clean sheets to enhance his reputation as one of the best young keepers in the country.
Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo rates Norris highly and he is expected to stay at the club next season and provide cover and competition for new signing Rui Patricio and Ruddy.
