Wolverhampton Wanderers goalkeeper John Ruddy faces an uncertain future, as his contract comes to an end during the summer of 2020, as per Transfermarkt.
This type of scenario often brings up questions regarding whether a player is worthy of being given a new contract at their club.
That is no different here, and the general consensus seems to be that Wolves fans want the 33-year-old to stay.
John Ruddy’s contract expires at the end of the season.
Would you like to keep him? https://t.co/2j2pOq15Cn

One fan has suggested it is “well worth keeping him”, while another has stated that he is “a wonderful man, good goalkeeper” among other superlatives.
The stopper has been at the Molineux since 2017, when he signed from Norwich City, and has played 60 games during that time, although only six of those have come this term.
One supporter would like to see him add to that, claiming “I’d also give him a Europa League game on Thursday”.
Yes. I’d also give him a Europa game on Thursday. Probably the only chance he will ever get now.

A wonderful man, good goalkeeper, excellent in the dressing room, marvellous family man, worth keeping just to have him around the club

However, there is an acceptance among some supporters that the veteran will leave when the season comes to an end.
That is because he has played just six games this term, with none of those coming in the Premier League, due to the fact that he is acting as backup to Rui Patricio.
One fan has stated that “he is too good not to get regular first-team games”, so it seems as though he will leave with fans’ blessing if he does walk out of the exit door.
Yes….but he is too good not to get regular first team games 🙁

100% yes. Ultimate professional and with Rui in #1 he’s a great backup. I do think he’ll leave though.
