Wolves: Insider drops Max Kilman contract claim

Wolves have started to make a habit of moving some of their key players out of the club over the past few years.

Diogo Jota headed to Liverpool in 2020, followed more recently by Adama Traore’s loan switch to Barcelona during the previous January transfer window.

With the upcoming summer transfer window in mind, it seems as though the Old Gold will look to take some precautions in making sure one of their current key figures doesn’t follow in Jota and Traore’s footsteps with a Molineux exit.

Which club did Wolves loan Willian Jose from in the 2021 January transfer window?

What’s the talk?

Speaking to GIVEMESPORT, journalist Pete O’Rourke had this to say about Max Kilman’s immediate future at Molineux and what Wolves could do to keep him at the club amid recent transfer links with fellow Premier League club Chelsea.

He said: “I’m sure there will be contract talks, maybe in the summer, just to improve his terms and bring him more in line with the other top earners at Molineux.

“It would show his reward for the progress that he’s made for the club as well.”

Fans will be buzzing

Since arriving at the Midlands club back in the 2018 summer window on a free transfer from Maidenhead United, the 24-year-old has gone on to make himself a pivotal figure for the Old Gold.

He has amassed 63 senior appearances in a Wolves shirt across all competitions, chipping in with one goal and two assists along the way.

Taking into account how the Englishman has managed to tackle more opposition players (49) this season than any other Wolves centre-back and make more blocks (48) than any player in Bruno Lage’s squad, it’s safe to say that the £8.1m-rated man has played a big part in the Old Gold’s decent defensive record in this campaign.

Should Wolves offer Kilman a new contract this summer?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Additionally, with Kilman being younger than his fellow centre-backs Conor Coady, Romain Saiss and Willy Boly, it would make sense that the club would be desperate to keep hold of him as he has the potential longevity ahead of him to be a long-term feature at Molineux for the foreseeable future.

With all of that in mind, it’s safe to suggest that a lot of fans connected with the Midlands club would be delighted to see the defender put pen to paper on a new deal that would ward off any potential interest from elsewhere.
