Henry : Dream Move

Henry : Dream Move

Wednesfield born Karl Henry has completed his dream move to Molineux.

The lifelong Wolves fan fina;lly put pen to paper this morning following protracted talks over his personal terms.

Speaking to the clubs official site he said :

'To say I am happy with the move is a big understatement - I am delighted,'

'Wolves is my hometown club, most of my family support the team, and it is a dream to be playing here at Molineux.'

So Magical Mick is now not only making young, hungry signings, he's bagging Wolves fans as well.

Karl is no stranger to Molineux as a player having appeared for Stoke City there 2 years ago.

But that wont even compare with the thrill of running out on the Molineux turf wearing old gold and black.

'I played here at Molineux for Stoke two seasons ago, and that was a massive day for me and my family, so to come here and sign for Wolves is amazing.
'It all happened so quickly. This time last week I was sat at Stoke wondering what would happen and then on Saturday I was thrown in to play for Wolves against Aston Villa. Now, just a few days later, I have signed a three-year contract.' he said

All that remains to be seen now is where Mick McCarthy will deploy him. In his time at Stoke Karl was called on to play in a wide variety of positions, but ideally , there is one place he wants to be, in th thick of the action, as he went oon to explain

'My favoured position is central midfield, although I have filled in at right midfield, right-back and even left-back over the past couple of seasons and so I became a bit of a utility player,'

Karl also clears up the situation at Stoke, and teh circumstance that saw him leave.

Contrary to popular belief, this wasn't because he was seen as surpluss to requirement. Far from it.

'Tony Pulis did ask me to stay at Stoke, there was a contract on the table but I felt it was time for a fresh start. I had been at the club since I was 11 and then when Wolves came along last week I think the manager knew I couldn't turn it down.

So now the 23 year olds eyes are firmly fixed on an opening day full debut, and he is relishing the chance to get stuck in. AS he goes on to explain.

'It won't be easy at all down there at Plymouth on Saturday. The first game of the season is always tough. Ian Holloway is known for having big strong teams, so it will be difficult for us - but I am looking forward to it.'

Wolves new squad is starting to take shape, and it's one not seen at Molineux for a while.

Young, lean and hungry, and populated by die hard Wolverhampton Wanderers fans.

Hats off to Mick. Once again, he's come up trumps
