Carl Ikeme signs new contract till 2019

Super Eagles goalkeeper Carl Ikeme has signed a new contract with Wolverhampton Wanderers which will last until 2019.

The Nigerian international has been a professional at Molineux since 2003 and he has gone to make 192 appearances in all competitions during that time.

After being regarded as the club’s number-one stopper under both previous boss Walter Zenga and current manager Paul Lambert, Ikeme extended his long-term association with the Championship club.

Lambert told the club’s official website: “I think it is important to get players like Carl Ikeme signed up to a new deal. As it was with Dave Edwards, he is an experienced member of the team. He knows exactly what the club is about and if you get a core of lads like that then they can look after the dressing room as well. Carl has been terrific since I arrived and I think this is a big signing for the club.

“I remember coming here with Blackburn last season and he made some incredible saves. He is a big presence, a great lad and a top goalkeeper.”

Ikeme is likely to be in the starting lineup when Wolves host Queens Park Rangers on New Year’s Eve.
