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.”
