Michael Kightly has agreed a one-year contract extension with Wolverhampton Wanderers.
The winger has been swamped with leg injuries over the past two years, limiting him to only 14 games in the last two campaigns. However, after a good return at the end of last season and an impressive pre-season, the 25 year-old will be at the Molineux for 12 more months.
Kightly spoke to Wolves’ website, stating: “It is nice that the club came to me and asked me to sign another year.”
The 25 year-old also stated his understanding of the short-term contract he has been offered, adding:
“I understand that, after the last couple of years I’ve had, I wouldn’t be offered another long-term contract,”
“At the same time, though, I’m not the sort of person who would want to walk away on a free as some other players might do. I think this deal is good for all of us.”
Wolves manager Mick McCarthy is also delighted to see the winger play under him again next season. He told the club’s website:
“It’s great news that he’s signed a new contract to extend his stay with us, and I know how keen he is to go out and show what he can do again this season.”
