Wolves defender Jody Craddock has signed a one-year contract extension with the Premier League club.

The 34-year-old club captain was the fans' player of the year last season and key to the club avoiding the drop.

"A couple of years ago I thought I might be dropping down the leagues but I'm still at Wolves and we're still in the Premier League," said Craddock.

"It's brilliant to get the contract sorted, I couldn't have asked for anything better for my career."

Wolves manager Mick McCarthy called Craddock a "model professional" and said he "thoroughly deserves his new contract".

"He's one of those defenders that does exactly what it says on the tin, but above all he's a top professional in the way he handles himself on and off the pitch," said McCarthy.

"He will know - as we all do - that there is probably an even bigger challenge ahead in the Premier League next season."

Craddock arrived at Molineux from Sunderland in 2003 and was instrumental in the club's return to the top tier of English football in 2009.
