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.”
