Hwang Hee-chan ‘Trips Annual Salary’ With Wolves 2028+α Re-sign ‘In Front of Your Eyes’…”He Will Be The Club’s Highest Salary Receiver”

Fabrizio Romano, a reporter familiar with European football news, said on the 13th (Korea time), “Wolves and Hwang Hee-chan have agreed on a new deal. The new contract is valid until June 2028, with an option to extend it.”

“With the new contract, Hwang Hee-chan will be on the same level as the club’s highest-paid players,” he said, adding, “It’s a huge move by Wolves for one of the best players.”

Hwang Hee-chan, who entered his third season after moving to Wolverhampton from Leipzig in the German Bundesliga in the summer of 2021, is at a career high this season, showing his best performance without a hamstring (back thigh muscle) injury that has plagued him. 온라인카지노

After the opening of the 2023/24 season, Hwang Hee-chan has scored eight goals and two assists in the league so far, achieving double-digit attack points for the first time since his debut in the Premier League. He also scored one goal in the League Cup, and is close to scoring his 10th goal of the season.

Showing off his remarkable scoring ability, Hwang tied for fifth in the Premier League goalscoring list. Only four Premier League players have scored more goals than Hwang Hee-chan this season, including Erling Holan (14 goals from Manchester City), Mohamed Salah (11 goals from Liverpool), Son Heung-min (10 goals from Tottenham Hotspur) and Gerod Baughan (9 goals from West Ham United).

What’s more noticeable is that Hwang Hee-chan has become the player who scored goals in six consecutive home games, the longest in Wolverhampton’s history. He also scored six consecutive offensive points in September and October, giving his team a critical moment. He received the Wolverhampton Player of the Month award in October, which is supported by home fans.

Hwang Hee-chan’s performance was enough for Wolverhampton to offer him a new contract. The Athletic, a global media outlet, said in November, “Hwang Hee-chan’s existing contract does not end in 2026. He has become a key player in the team this season and the club is trying to compensate for his performance with additional contracts.”

Hwang Hee-chan also has a desire to remain at Molineux, so negotiations are underway positively, he said. “He is known to be enjoying working with coach Gary O’Neill and is expected to extend his contract,” he said, signaling a high possibility of renewing his contract.

Amid keen attention to when the contract will be renewed, Italian reporter Nicolo Skira explained the details of the contract on social media on the 11th, saying, “Wolverhampton is trying to extend the contract with Hwang Hee-chan until 2028.”

Reporter Romano then said Hwang Hee-chan finally agreed to a five-year contract with Wolverhampton that includes an extension option. Hwang Hee-chan, who was born in 1996, signed with the club until 2028, means that he will play up to 32 years old, and in fact, he intends to spend his prime at Wolverhampton.

Instead, in exchange for a contract renewal, Hwang Hee-chan joined the club’s highest-paid team. According to Spotrac, which estimates soccer players’ salaries, the current Wolverhampton’s highest-paid player is Pablo Sarabia, who is receiving 4.68 million pounds (about 7.7 billion won). Hwang Hee-chan, who is currently receiving 30,000 pounds (about 50 million won) per week, is receiving 1.56 million pounds (about 2.6 billion won) in annual salary.

If Hwang Hee-chan receives the same level of salary as Sarabia, he will receive nearly three times his current salary in the future. The reason why the club is giving Hwang Hee-chan special treatment includes not only his outstanding performance this season, but also the fact that Wolverhampton head coach Gary O’Neill strongly wants to renew Hwang Hee-chan’s contract.

Coach O’Neill, who was asked about Hwang Hee-chan’s contract renewal in November, said, “Of course, I hope so. There’s nothing progress yet, but the club is definitely talking to Channi,” adding, “I’m a big fan of Channi, so I hope it goes well.” “Chani” is a nickname of Hwang Hee-chan, who is called in Wolverhampton, and is named after Hwang Hee-chan, as South Korea’s national soccer team captain Son Heung-min is called “Sonny.”

“Since I arrived at the club, Hwang Hee-chan has been amazing. I accepted everything I asked for,” he said. “The goal scene was very good, but I also liked the professional consciousness he is showing and the way he always carries out his demands with grit and determination with a smile on his face.” “Yes, Hwang Hee-chan is an important player in the team and the club,” he said. “I hope we can keep him longer than Hwang Hee-chan’s current contract period.”

Coach O’Neill also praised Hwang Hee-chan at a pre-press conference in the 16th round of the Premier League against Nottingham Forest on the 10th, saying, “Hwang Hee-chan is our core. His eight goals are really impressive,” adding, “He is intelligent, understands the situation well, and knows when to score the goal.”

As coach O’Neill wishes, Wolverhampton succeeded in renewing his long-term contract by promising Hwang Hee-chan the best treatment in the club. Fans focused on when Hwang Hee-chan, who became Wolverhampton’s best player in name and reality, will announce his official contract renewal.
