Wolves defender Sam Ricketts has revealed he is open to leaving the Championship club.

Ricketts’ last appearance for Wolves was in November and with his contract up for renewal at the end of the season, the right-back is considering his options.

Ricketts is believed to want to continue playing and his desire for being part of the Wales squad has some influence over his decision. The 33-year-old told BBC Sport:

I would like to play for as long as I can and it’s looking like I will have to find a new club to do so. It’s a great opportunity to qualify and I want to be part of it. Whether that be in a starting position or to be in the squad to push and help the young players coming though, I certainly feel there’s a role for me.” 

Manager Kenny Jackett has given the 52-timed capped player a coaching role in recent weeks with Jackett seeing management potential in him. Wolves visit Brighton and Hove Albion on Saturday.
