“Conor Coady and Matt Doherty have committed their long-term futures to Wolves by agreeing new deals until 2023,” read a statement.

“Wolves’ longest-serving player, Doherty, like Coady, has put pen to paper on a new-four-and-a-half-year deal.”

Coady, who progressed through Liverpool’s academy, joined Wolves in 2015 after loan spells with Sheffield United and Huddersfield and has been a regular in the Premier League this season, making 26 appearances.

Republic of Ireland right-back Doherty, who arrived at Molineux from Bohemians in 2010, made his 200th league appearance for Wolves earlier this season.

Meanwhile, Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo admits he let emotions get the better of him against Bristol City last season, as he prepares to return to Ashton Gate.

The Championship fixture between the two sides at the end of 2017 saw Nuno sent to the stands after impeding on Bristol City’s technical area, while there were red cards for Wolves defender Danny Batth and home goalkeeper Frank Fielding.

Nuno’s team travel to Bristol City again on Sunday, this time as a club seventh in the Premier League, in the FA Cup.

Ahead of the fifth round tie, he said: “That game was so emotional. Particularly it was so hard for me as I was sent off and went to the stands. Being there, you realise that you cannot help the team.

“All the emotions come and later what I felt was a big, big joy and a tremendous moment of happiness. It was so important for us that I could not contain myself.
