The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP - By An­drew Law­ton

SIGN­ING a new three-year con­tract at Wolves is all thanks to the play­ers and staff at Sh­effield United, ac­cord­ing to on-loan de­fender Ethan Ebanks Lan­dell.

The 24-year-old is on a sea­son-long loan at the Blades, with his par­ent club not tak­ing up the op­tion to re­call him this month.

The de­fender is de­lighted to be stay­ing at Bra­mall Lane and ad­mits that, with­out the op­por­tu­ni­ties af­forded to him, he doesn’t think he would have earned his new deal.

“I’m buzzing, I’ve al­ways said, since I came, that I wanted to be here for the full sea­son. Ob­vi­ously it’s pos­si­ble to stay for the full sea­son now, so I couldn’t be hap­pier,” said Ebanks-Lan­dell.

“The worst thing that could hap­pen for me and my ca­reer is to go back to Wolves and not play un­der any cir­cum­stances.

“I’ve thanked Sh­effield United loads. I could have been sat at Wolves not play­ing and I wouldn’t have had an­other con­tract.

“In my head, I don’t think I would have got one be­cause I wouldn’t have de­served one.

“I’ve come here. The boys have helped me do well and the coach­ing staff have helped me im­prove as well, so Wolves deemed I de­served a new con­tract.”
