Ikeme has had loan spells at eight different clubs in his career

Wolves goalkeeper Carl Ikeme has signed a new three-year contract to keep him at Molineux until 2017.

The Birmingham-born 28-year-old came through the Wolves academy and broke the club record for most clean sheets in a season as they were promoted back to the Championship last season.

Ikeme, who had one year left on his previous contract, has made 103 appearances for Wolves.

"It gives me the chance to concentrate purely on my football now," he said.external-link

"I've been at Wolves for a long time and certainly didn't want to leave, and now I'm very excited about what is going to happen in the future.

"I've had to go on loan in previous years to build up my experience, but the long-term plan has always been to play here and I've been pleased with my performances over last couple of years."

Ikeme, who will compete with youngster Aaron McCarey for a first-team spot next season, follows defender Richard Stearman, midfielder Dave Edwards and young striker Liam McAlinden in signing new deals with Kenny Jackett's side.
