Conor Coady: Everton sign Wolves captain on a season-long loan | Transfer Center News

Everton have completed the signing of Wolves captain Conor Coady on a season-long loan deal.

Everton beat West Ham with the signing of Coady, with the 29-year-old centre-back breaking his seven-year spell at Molineux to guarantee first-team football ahead of the Qatar World Cup and a possible England call-up.

Coady was dropped by Wolves manager Bruno Lage in Saturday’s 2-1 loss at Leeds, the first time he had been intentionally left out of a Wolves shirt since April 2017, and remained a substitute not used on Elland Road.

“It’s amazing to join Everton,” said Coady, who has been capped 10 times by England. everton-tv. “As soon as I heard the interest, both from the coach and the football club itself, I really wanted to be a part of it straight away. I’m looking forward to joining.”

“I grew up in the city, I know the football club, how big this club is and what it means to the fans. I am someone who was desperate to come here, to play for this club. I have family and friends who are great Evertonians.

“I am here to give absolutely everything I have for this football club. It is important that I work as hard as I can to help my team-mates, help the club move forward and make people proud.”

Everton manager Frank Lampard added: “We are delighted to bring a player of Conor’s quality and vast experience to Everton, and he fits the way we want to play as a team.

“As well as being one of the most trusted defenders in the Premier League and an England international, his leadership skills will also be of great benefit to us.”

Coady eases Everton’s injury crisis

Everton’s capture of Coady brings much-needed reinforcements to Goodison Park after the Toffees confirmed defender Ben Godfrey was facing a three-month layoff after undergoing surgery for a broken fibula.

An Everton statement read: “Ben Godfrey underwent successful surgery this morning on the fractured fibula he sustained during Saturday’s Premier League opener against Chelsea at Goodison Park.

“The defender will now begin rehabilitation at Finch Farm under the care of the Club’s medical team and is expected to be out for around three months.”
