Wolverhampton Wanderers defender Kortney Hause has put pen to paper on a new three-year deal.
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.
Superb news. The lad has some— Danny Rosamond (@DannyRosamond) April 5, 2018
talent and great potential. Congratulations Korts
Cannot understand why Miranda played ahead of him against Hull. Miranda and Batth will obviously leave in the Summer. Better to pick Hause and players like Cameron John ahead of them, players who may have a long-term future at Wolves.— Colin Peppiatt (@ColinPep1) April 5, 2018
