Wolverhampton Wanderers goalkeeper Andy Lonergan wants to leave the club and move back to the North West, according to Sunday’s print edition of The Sun.
Former Wolves manager Paul Lambert finally left the club last week after weeks of speculation about his future. Former Porto manager Nuno was then appointed the next day and one of his first tasks may be to find a new club for goalkeeper Lonergan.
Lonergan signed for Wolves on a two-year deal in June last year but made only 11 league appearances for the club this season. Most of these appearances came towards the end of the season, with six of them in April.
Lonergan began his career with Preston North End and made 232 appearances for the club in all competitions over 11 years. In 2011, he left to join Leeds United for an undisclosed fee. He made 35 league appearances in one season with the club before signing for Bolton Wanderers in 2012.
Competing with Adam Bogdan for a starting place and suffering from an injury, Lonergan made only nine appearances in his first season with the club. After after further 53 games in a total of three years with Bolton, he left to join Fulham in the Championship.
Lonergan made 31 appearances in one season with Fulham before joining Wolves last summer.
After failing to properly nail down a first-team place at Wolves and wanting to move his family back up to the North West, it looks very likely that Lonergan will leave Wolves in the coming weeks.
