By George! Elokobi commits to Wolves

The deal also includes the option for a fourth year to be taken by
the club should they wish to further prolong their association with
him. Elokobi still had 12 months left to run on his current
contract at Molineux, but has extended that agreement by
two-and-a-half years. Wolves boss Mick McCarthy is delighted to see
the full-back put pen to paper, having witnessed him battle his way
back from a serious knee injury that threatened to end his career
in August 2008. “I’m absolutely delighted that George has earned
himself a new contract which is a credit to his sheer hard work and
determination,” he told the club’s official website. “He’s come
back from a career-threatening injury and got back on the last day
of the season we were promoted. “He’s then contributed to our
survival in the Barclays Premier League. “George is such a great
character around the place and is an inspiration to anyone who ever
gets injured in terms of how he has come back. “He is a really
valued and respected member of the squad and I’m delighted to have
him signed up. He’s got better and better and has just got a great
desire to improve all the time.”
