Gobern Mystery

Gobern Mystery

Wolve homegrown but injury prone winger Lewis Gobern has still yet to sign the new contract offered to him by manager Mick McCarthy.

Having figured in McCarthy's plans early on in the season, and scoring twice in 12 appearances, Gobern who is out of contract this summer has seen his chances limited by hamstring injuries, and the arrival of dynamic duo Michael McIndoe and Michael Kightly.

"We've offered Lewis a contract because he's a product of our youth system and we want him to stay," McCarthy said this week.

"Everyone can see he's been successful and we're doing out utmost to get his injury right because we know we've got a player who can come and play in the first team.

"He's had a difficult time with injuries but this shows our belief in him and that we want him to have a future here,"

"We want him to stay but as yet the contract remains unsigned." he added.

Gobern has long been earmarked as having the potential to be a great asset to Wolverhampton Wanderers, and McCarthy's words and offer of a long term deal seemingly backs this up.

But if the youngster is becoming impatient for first team opportunities, the Wolves boss may have to resign himself to seeing Gobern leave the club at best for a nominal fee.
