Henry: Signs new four-year deal

The Wolverhampton-born midfielder had two years remaining on his previous deal.

And manager Stale Solbakken is happy Henry has opted to remain at Molineux telling the club's website: "There was interest from a couple of Premier League teams in Karl so we are pleased that he is staying with us.

"He wanted to stay, we wanted him to stay, and it is good that the club have added another two years to his contract.

"The four-year deal also means that he will be eligible for a testimonial if he stays all the way through.

"I think it gives Karl stability but also gives the club stability."

Henry joined his hometown club in 2006 under manager Mick McCarthy and has since made 218 appearances.

Henry added: "I think there was some interest from a couple of clubs in the Premier League but I was happy to commit my future to the club and I am fully committed to the cause."
