Wolves boss Nuno adamant Adama Traore happy at Molineux

Wolves boss Nuno is adamant Adama Traore is happy at Molineux.

Nuno, as well as committing his own future to the club by signing a fresh three-year deal, has tied down key players Conor Coady and Raul Jimenez recently.

Traore is set to follow suit soon, too, and Nuno – whose side travel to Leeds on Monday night – said on the situation: “What I can say about this is Adama is delighted to be here.

“You can see how happy he's been in training just by seeing us be together again.

“Things will happen naturally. Speculation around our players doesn't bother us.

“We know what we have to do. First of all, you have to be happy where you are, and he clearly is."

The 24-year-old was handed his debut against Portugal and also came off the bench against Switzerland before being included from the off against Ukraine.

On if he watched those games and was proud of Traore, Nuno said: “I watch all the matches our players are involved in – some of them live, some of them I record and watch all the minutes our players play.

“I was delighted and really happy for Adama because he made his debut and he made his debut as a starter, so that shows the progress and the impact Adama had.

“I was delighted with all of our internationals – Daniel Podence made his debut for Portugal, Conor Coady scored for England.

“Some players didn't have so many minutes as we would have wished because the international coaches made different decisions.

“I'm happy but at the same time worried and tremendously proud at the amount of international players we have at Wolves.

“We must feel proud as a squad and as a club because representing your national team is the best of the best in your own country so that says enough.

“It says a lot about the quality and the talent of the players we have, and the hard work that we put in.

“When we arrived we didn't have so many internationals so the progression and the commitment of this group makes me hugely proud."
