Keogh agrees new Wolves extension

Forward Andy Keogh has signed a two-year extension to his Wolves deal.

The 22-year-old Republic of Ireland international's existing contract had 18 months to run, but his new deal runs through until the summer of 2012.

"From stepping in the door just over two years ago Andy has had a huge impact for us," Wolves boss Mick McCarthy told the club website.

"There's always been interest in Andy from other clubs and all the managers I speak to like him."

He loves it at Wolves and wants to play for this club. I think that's fantastic

Keogh has been the target of criticism from supporters since his switch from Scunthorpe over two years ago but has always retained the fervent and public backing of his manager.

McCarthy added: "There have been a couple of occasions when he's had a rocky relationship with the supporters and perhaps hasn't quite been appreciated for all the graft he puts in.

"But all he ever wanted to do when he sat down in the office with me was to sign and stay on here - he loves it at Wolves and wants to play for this club. I think that's fantastic."
