Report: Wolves ace Rajiv van La Parra discussing shock new contract after failed deadline day exit

Wolverhampton Wanderers winger Rajiv van La Parra could be set for a new contract.

According to the Express and Star, Wolverhampton Wanderers winger Rajiv van La Parra is closing in on a new contract at Molineux.

Van La Parra, formerly of Feyenoord, joined Wolves from Heerenveen in the summer of 2014, and made 41 appearances in his debut season at Molineux, scoring twice.

However, the Dutchman has endured a bizarre season so far. As noted by the Express and Star, Van La Parra was given permission to talk to Leeds about a move to Elland Road last summer, before being farmed out on loan to Championship rivals Brighton and Hove Albion.

On deadline day, as we reported at HITC, Huddersfield failed in a deadline day bid to sign Van La Parra, with Wolves performing something of a U-turn by now wanting him to stay at Molineux.

Now, the Express and Star report that Wolves are discussing a new contract with Van La Parra, given that his current deal expires in just 18 months.

The 24-year-old wide man now looks set to play a much bigger role in the Wolves side given the season-ending injury to Jordan Graham, and his recent performances have shown why Huddersfield were so keen to sign him.

Signing a new contract would complete a remarkable turnaround for Van La Parra at Molineux, who looked set for the chopping block just six months ago.

Should Van La Parra stay at Wolves?
