Hennessey commits to Wolves


Wales international goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey has signed a new five-year contract with Wolverhampton Wanderers.

The 23-year-old still had two years of his current deal to run, but has now extended his stay at Molineux until the summer of 2015.

Manager Mick McCarthy told the club's official website:"I'm delighted that Wayne has signed his new contract.

"We're blessed to have three very good goalkeepers at the club who are currently fit and battling for the position. Wayne is somebody who I believe is a top-class young keeper who will also get better.

"This is really good news for the club to have secured one of its best young players and one who will be keen to play a big part in the future."

Hennessey has made just over 100 appearances to date for Wolves, while during the 2006-07 season he was loaned out to Stockport County where he kept a club record nine consecutive clean sheets.
