English Championship leaders Wolverhampton Wanderers have handed centre-back Kortney Hause a new three-year contract with an option of a further year, according to the club's official website.

The 22-year-old has played 78 games for Wolves since arriving from Wycombe Wanderers in January 2014, but has featured on just four occasions this term, with a measly seven minutes under his belt in the Championship.

Nevertheless, the Molineux club reckon Hause has what it takes to become integral to the club's plans once again, having played 59 Championship games over the course of the last three campaigns.

Considering the form of Conor Coady, Willy Boly, Danny Batth and Ryan Bennett, the former England youth international does not have a chance of breaking into manager Nuno Santos' starting line-up right now, while Roderick Miranda is also ahead of him in the pecking order.

Wolves will certainly further strengthen at the back once life in the Premier League next term becomes certain, and that could see Hause fall off the first-team radar completely.

A couple of Wolves fans believe he is a talented defender who deserves more chances, though, and they voiced their opinions on Twitter when the club announced his new deal.
