Wolverhampton Wanderers are in talks with Hwang Hee-chan over a new contract.
Hwang’s existing agreement does not expire until 2026, but the 27-year-old has become a key player this season and the club are keen to reward his performances with an improved deal.
Negotiations are progressing positively thanks to a desire on both sides for the South Korea international to remain at Molineux.
Hwang is known to enjoy working under head coach Gary O’Neill and can be expected to sign an extension if the terms are right.
Having contributed seven goals across 13 appearances in all competitions this season, Hwang is Wolves’ top scorer in 2023-24 and also has two assists.
He found the net for South Korea in a 5-0 World Cup qualification win against Singapore on Thursday and is set to face China on Tuesday.
Hwang was loaned to Wolves by RB Leipzig in August 2021 and the move was turned permanent for £14million the next January.
