Wolverhampton Wanderers are believed to have told Andy Lonergan he can leave Molineux this summer, the Express & Star reports.

Lonergan only moved to Wolves a year ago on a free transfer from Fulham, and made a total of 15 first team appearances in Carl Ikeme's absence.

However, it would appear that the 33-year-old does not feature in the plans of new boss Nuno Espirito Santo - a former goalkeeper himself.

With promising youngsters Harry Burgoyne and Jack Ruddy also on Wolves' books, it remains to be seen whether or not the Portuguese would seek to replace Lonergan.

Interestingly, Wolves are listed as candidates to sign Iker Casillas with Sky Bet, although with odds of 25/1, a move for the former Real Madrid and Spain number one seems unlikely at this stage.

Should Wolverhampton Wanderers sign a replacement for Lonergan - and, if so, who?
