WOLVES AND IRELAND defender Stephen Ward has extended his current contract, in a move that will tie him to Wolves until 2015.

His previous deal was due to expire in 2013, however a series of fine performances have prompted the club to reward him with a new contract.

Speaking to the official Wolves website following confirmation of the deal, manager Mick McCarthy said the defender’s reward was merited on the basis of his recent performances:

“Since arriving from Bohemians, he has just got better and better and is a top professional who never stops working.

“He’s made a great start to this season, not only in the defensive side but also by chipping in with a couple of goals, and he has been rewarded with this new deal.”

The 26-year-old has been a regular fixture in the side’s first team since joining the club from Bohemians in January 2007.
