'They must be over the moon' - Exclusive: Hutton wowed by 'Brilliant' Wolves news

Alan Hutton admits he has been hugely impressed by the impact of Nuno Espirito Santo after he penned a new contract at Wolves.

Speaking exclusively to Football Insider assistant editor Russell Edge, the former Aston Villa and Scotland star claims that the 46-year-old has transformed the club during his time in charge.

Wolves confirmed on Sunday that the Portuguese manager had signed a new three-year deal at Molineux.

Nuno arrived at the club back in 2017 after he left Porto and has taken the Midlands outfit from the Championship to the Europa League quarter-finals last season.

Hutton believes that players love working under the former goalkeeper and suggests that the club will be delighted to have tied him down to a new long-term deal.

Hutton told Football Insider: “Brilliant, he’s been absolutely excellent, you just have to look at his record from when they came up through the Championship, he’s been outstanding.

“I think the team that they’re putting together, what a mix. I know there’s a lot of foreign in there but I mean the way they play, they’re not scared to pass the ball, score beautiful goals, get in with the hard work.

“He just seems as a great guy to be a manager, all the players are really buying into what he wants to do. Coady, when he got his call up for England, he spoke so highly of him and how they’re all in the same direction, he just wants them to do well and play with freedom.

“It’s such a good thing to have a manager like that who backs his players and just wants you to perform on a daily basis and is willing to help you along.

“They must be over the moon with how things are going there and that he’s signed a new deal.”
