Wolves goalkeeper Matija Sarkic delighted with Shrewsbury loan

Wolves goalkeeper Matija Sarkic feels his game improving while on-loan with Shrewsbury Town this season.

Sarkic, who joined Wolves from Aston Villa last summer, linked up with the League One side on a season-long loan in September, in a bid to gain further experience. The Montenegrin international has made 23 appearances, keeping nine clean sheets so far.

He told the club's website: “It's been really good apart from the injury at the beginning of the season. I've enjoyed it and I've learned a lot; I learn every day. I've enjoyed having a consistent spell of games.

“It's a great group of lads, it's just a shame the manager isn't here – he's in the hospital struggling with Covid. I'm looking forward to getting him back and I've just enjoyed it all so far."

On Wolves, he added: “I see myself playing in the first team, of course. I definitely see myself being Wolves' number one someday, I wouldn't have signed otherwise, so that's where I see myself in the long-term."
