Wolves are willing to let captain Conor Coady LEAVE in search of first-team football – with the defensive lynchpin set to drop down the pecking order after summer arrival of Nathan Collins

Wolves are prepared to listen to offers for Conor Coady if their captain feels he needs to leave the club to continue playing regular football.

Coady has been a mainstay at Molineux during the Premier League era, rarely missing a game, and has broken into the England squad thanks to that outstanding consistency.

But the arrival of £20million centre-back Nathan Collins, coupled with boss Bruno Lage’s switch to a back four this season, means Coady has slipped down the pecking order and is unlikely to start Saturday’s opening fixture at Leeds.

There is believed to be interest in Coady from Everton, where former Wolves sporting director Kevin Thelwell now holds a senior role. 

Collins is set to start alongside Max Kilman in defence at Elland Road, while Coady was used by Lage and previous boss Nuno Espirito Santo at the heart of a back three.

Lage is confident of adding to his squad before the transfer window closes.

However, Wolves are braced for further offers for attacking midfielder Morgan Gibbs-White.

Gibbs-White is pencilled in for a starting place at Leeds but has yet to sign the new contract offered him when he returned from loan at Sheffield United, meaning he has less than two years on his current deal. 

Nottingham Forest have been interested in the 22-year-old throughout the transfer window and may get their man if they bid about £30m.
