The striker, who has seven goals so far this season, is nearing the end of his contract and Solbakken had previously stressed that both he and Ebanks-Blake are open-minded about the future, prompting speculation the striker could be a 'surprise' departure in the January window.
Solbakken told the Shropshire Star: "He's been unlucky in front of goal but he's been working harder than ever, his attitude is 100 per cent - on and off the pitch he's been superb.
"Even when he hasn't been playing, he's been encouraging the other players and been very positive. So I'm not thinking about him - I was thinking more generally, and not anyone in particular."
Ebanks-Blake is one of six Wolves players out of contract in the summer with Christophe Berra, Stephen Hunt, Ronald Zubar, Sam Winnall and Liam McAlinden in a similar situation.
