Done Deal: Former England goalkeeper joins Wolves

Wolverhampton Wanderers have officially confirmed the signing of goalkeeper John Ruddy, on a free transfer. 

Wolverhampton Wanderers have continued their summer signing spree, adding goalkeeper John Ruddy to the squad. Ruddy joins the Midlands side on a free transfer, following his release from Norwich City at the end of last season.

It is reported that Ruddy had penned a two-year deal with the club.

The ex-England international joins Wolves just days after the Wolves keeper Carl Ikeme was diagnosed with acute leukaemia. Ruddy admitted joining the club was “bittersweet”, due to circumstances at the club currently.

Speaking to the club’s official website, Ruddy stated the following:

“First and foremost I want to send my best wishes to Carl and his family at this difficult time,” he also added “Now it is a situation where football takes a back seat for Carl and everyone’s thoughts are with him.”

We here at FootballFaithful want to wish Carl Ikeme all the best! The footballing world is behind you Carl!
