Dominic Iorfa: in demand

Wolves defender Dominic Iorfa has vowed to “stay grounded” after signing a new three-and-a-half-year deal to keep him at Molineux until the summer of 2019.

Prior to the news announced on Tuesday, the 20-year-old full-back had been on a contract that expired at the end of the season.

Having made the commitment through to the summer of 2019, academy product Iorfa said on www.wolves.co.uk: “It’s been going on for a while now and it’s a good feeling now it’s all been sorted.

“I’m just happy that it’s finished and I can focus completely on my football.

“I’m happy with the deal but I’m staying grounded, I still want to do well for the club and keep improving as a player.

“The fact that the club have been pleased with what I’ve done and the fact that they wanted to offer me another contract is really good.”

Iorfa, an England Under-21 international, made his senior debut in a loan spell with Shrewsbury in 2013-14 before getting his maiden run-out for the Wolves first-team the following season.

He has had a prominent role at the club since, and Wanderers boss Kenny Jackett said of the new deal: “This is very good news.

“In the last year since Dominic broke into the team he has made rapid strides and has consistently performed well for us in the right back position.

“He has also now broken into the England Under-21 ranks as well.

“We are delighted that he has committed his future to Wolves to help us try and build a team that will work up the league and be a force in the Championship.”

    As long as he ‘stays at the club’ until all the nonsense has passed thats the main thing! For all the young talent we have this kid is the only one (for me) that sticks out as having TRUE future prem quality slapped all over him. For me he has far more potential than Benik, just think he shows all attributes of a quality modern player, big, quick, great feet!

    I hope that contract has an extension written in it, mind you with the way the clubs going not sure it would make a difference ;(

    Fantastic news, personally I believe that we’ll see the best of Dominic when he plays at Centre Back, still think he lacks a little in the last third, perhaps that’s something he’ll improve on.

    Wolf- you may be right there as I believe his original (natural) position was at CB and he has all the attributes for it especially his aerial ability. As for the final third stuff whilst his delivery could definitely improve he is already very good at getting up the line and offering something, which is a good start for a lad his age.

    The CB thought is an interesting one but not sure we’ll see it anytime soon (sadly), Williamson is one of the first on the sheet at the moment and Dannys captain.
