Wolves to listen to offers for Conor Coady as Everton show transfer interest
Wolves are ready to listen to offers for centre-back Conor Coady amid fresh interest from Everton, according to The Daily Mail.
The newspaper reported via their print edition on Friday (5 August, page 76) that Wolves won’t stand in the 29-year-old’s way if he wants to seek regular first-team football away from Molineux.
It is understood that while Coady is Wolves’ club captain, shows “outstanding consistency” and barely ever misses a game for them, he has slipped down Bruno Lage’s pecking order and is unlikely to start against Leeds on Saturday (6 August) due to the arrival of Nathan Collins from Burnley.
It’s pretty mad that Wolves would be willing to let Coady leave.
He’s been a massive part of their return to the Premier League and the process of establishing themselves in the top-flight in recent years.

The former Liverpool defender’s fine form at Molineux has led to him regularly making the England squad too so it’s strange that Wolves are so willing to let him leave.
Coady is one of the best centre-backs in the Premier League outside of the big six and even though he has a past affiliation with Liverpool, we’d be over the moon if we sign him.
Frank Lampard has already strengthened the Blues’ defence this summer by signing James Tarkowski on a free transfer while Ruben Vinagre has added some much-needed depth at left-back.
Coady is a cut above the other centre-backs we have and would walk straight into our starting line-up, which leaves us shocked as to why Wolves would be so happy to let him go.
If he does quit Molineux and heads to Goodison Park, it would make our defence a lot stronger and Wolves’ a lot weaker so we’re all for it.
Let’s hope Kevin Thelwell can pull this one off.
