Wolves right-back Kevin Foley, the club's player of the season in their promotion year, has agreed a new four-year contract at Molineux.

The 24-year-old said: "It's something we've talked about for a while. And to have finally got it done is great.

"I was always 100% up for a new contract. The gaffer pulled me just before the end of the season and said he was going to offer me a new deal.

"I feel comfortable where I am and I'm loving life at the moment."

Foley, signed from Luton Town for a reported seven-figure fee in August 2007, will make his Premier League debut next season.

And having tied up his future until 2013, the newly-capped Republic of Ireland international said: "With all the boys around me, there's nowhere else I want to be.

We know it's going to be really tough, but everyone is 100% up for the challenge of the Premier League

"My agent spoke to the club and thankfully things have been sorted out pretty quickly without any problems.

"I definitely see my long-term future at Wolves.

"We've got the nucleus of a good team here and hopefully we can go from strength to strength.

"We know it's going to be really tough, but everyone in the dressing room is 100% up for the challenge.

"Why wouldn't they be because that's where everyone wants to be.

"In my own case I want to improve and I feel like there's no end to improvement as a player.

"Everyone can improve, no matter who you are.

"After resting, now is the time to kick on and look forward to next season."
