Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo speaks on his future and leaves a message for fans when talking to the media prior to his side’s clash against Leicester.
He has hinted that his future could be away from Wolves after revealing that the club had not opened talks with him over a new contract.
Of course, this news puts clubs across Europe on alert after his impressive spell with the West Midlands outfit, taking them from a Championship side into European contenders.
During the 2019/20 season, the 46-year-old was linked with both Premier League clubs Chelsea and Arsenal, and he’s soon enter the final year of his £3m-a-year deal.
A surprising sounding Nuno said on contract talks: “They haven’t. There was no proposal – I have one more year on my contract. I don’t sign my own contract. It’s not up to me.”
He added to worrying supporters: “They can be totally assured every day that Wolves is my obsession, I don’t think about anything else,” he said.
“I signed last season, I renewed for one more year and I have one more year. When you sign something you stick to it.
“I’m settled here. I have one more year of my contract and I’m committed to it. It’s my life because I’m 100 per cent happy and I give everything.”
Nuno guided the club to a seventh-place finish in his first season in the Premier League, ensuring qualification for the Europa League, where they are now into the last 32, while they are currently ninth in the Premier League and six points off a top-six spot.
He joined Wolves in May 2017 but signed an extension keeping him at the club until summer 2021 – but whether he will stay beyond that remains to be seen.
Fans gave their reaction after Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo speaks on his future…
Now Wolves could give us fans a lovely Valentine's present by announcing a new contract for Nuno and his staff…. Certainly need to do it at the end of the season….

Wolves need to get this sorted, Nuno is our best signing by a long way and we need to make him a new offer before someone else does.

Hoping he’ll get the funds in the summer, ensuring this squad is good enough to push for top 4!!

Nuno on a long term contract would be bigger than signing any number of players…. Instrumental to long term sustained growth…. Irreplaceable at this stage
