Wolverhampton Wanderers defender Richard Stearman has signed a new two-year deal.

The 26-year-old centre-back joined the club in 2008 from Leicester City and has since made 186 appearances, including 40 in last season's successful promotion campaign from Sky Bet League 1.

"I'm delighted to have signed," Stearman told the club's official website. "It's been going on for the last few weeks and I'm happy that we've got it over the line and I'm really looking forward to next season now.

"There was never any doubt from me about wanting to stay here."

Stearman joins Dave Edwards in extending his stay at Molineux after the Welsh midfielder penned a new two-year contract last week.
