Wolves have handed two-year contract extensions to goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey and striker Stephen Ward to reward them for their progress.
The new deal means Hennessey, 20, who only signed a revised contract at the beginning of the season, has committed his future at Molineux until 2012.
Ward, a Republic of Ireland Under 21 international who joined Wolves from Dublin side Bohemians a year ago, has a new deal which lasts until 2011.
Welsh international Hennessey has been ever-present for Wolves in the league this term, while Ward has made 23 starts and three substitute appearances in the Championship for the team.
Welcoming the new deals, Wolves manager Mick McCarthy told the club's official website: "They have both done very well and this is just reward for their progress.
"We showed faith in Wayne in the summer when Matt (Murray) was injured and the suggestion was that we had no keeper. He has repaid the faith and I'm delighted that he's signed this new deal.
"Likewise, Wardy came to us from Bohs last year and has made a rapid rise and there's still improvement to come from him."
