Wolves secure striker Ebanks-Blake to new deal

Wolves have confirmed that striker Sylvan Ebanks-Blake is set to pen a new four-year deal. The 23-year-old fired in 25 goals last season as Wolves won the Championship, finishing as the division's top goalscorer for the second season running.

"This is a reward to Sylvan for his outstanding goalscoring for the last two years," chief executive Jez Moxey told www.wolves.co.uk.

"To win the Golden Boot two years running is a superb achievement and we want him to feel absolutely magnificent going into the Premier League, where hopefully he can do exceptionally well.

"We realise it's a big step-up but he's really happy about being here and he sees his long-term future here too and we feel we have to act accordingly."

"He has been magnificent for us and he epitomises the determination and focus of the players here," added Moxey. "He has also given great value for money and he's been literally magnificent in every aspect.

"As soon as we said we were interested in him, he wanted to come and he loves it here - he loves the fans, he loves scoring goals, he loves playing at Molineux and his team-mates and the manager think he's fantastic."
