Wolves keeper Hennessey: I'm better for Premiership experience

Wolves goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey feels he's improving by playing in the Premiership.

He said: "I am only 22, I want a lot more caps. Neville Southall's record number of caps for Wales is a target, obviously. It is the sort of total that only really goalkeepers can achieve.

"I hope I can take his record. He was fantastic, and achieved so much, so to get anywhere near him would be a proud achievement for me.

"I'm enjoying the Premier League now Wolves have been promoted and I feel that having played for Wales has been a great help for me.

"I have been facing big teams and big players, and a lot of them do play in the Premier League, so my Wales experience has come in very helpful.

"Hopefully I have a long career ahead of me for Wales and we will qualify for a finals in my time, definitely. Why not? Just like at Wolves, we are all young and we will all improve."
