Premier League sides Newcastle United and West Bromwich Albion are both interested in signing Wolves defender Conor Coady, as per a report by the Birmingham Mail.

He has been converted into a defender from a central midfielder and his impressive displays have put him firmly on the radar of Newcastle and West Brom.

Coady has played a pivotal part in the Wolves side who have got to the top of the Championship this season under Nuno Espirito Santo and they will not want to lose him this January.

Newcastle and West Brom want to bolster their defences by signing Coady and ease off their relegation fears. Wolves will be in the Premier League next season with the way things are going so it will be strange to see Coady leave this January to move to a club who could potentially go down.

Coady, 24, has played 23 games for Wolves this season so far in the league. He started his career with his boyhood club Liverpool and made his debut for them in November 2012 in a Europa League game against Russian side Anzhi.

He never really broke into the first-team at Liverpool but got plenty of first-team experience on loan at Sheffield United in the 2013/14 season. He left Liverpool on a permanent basis to join Huddersfield Town in the summer of 2014 but spent just a season with them before he joined Wolves the year after.

Coady is a key player for Wolves and they will be hoping they can see off interest in him and hold onto him.
