Ikeme's Wolves Gain Promotion Back To EPL

Ikeme's Wolves Gain Promotion Back To EPL

Wolverhampton Wanderers earned promotion to the Premier League before they kicked a ball this weekend after Fulham drew 1-1 at home to Brentford on Saturday.

Wolves have sealed their promotion to the Premier League, without even playing a game.

Wolves can seal the Championship title next Saturday when they travel to Bolton Wanderers, while Birmingham remain just two points above the relegation zone.

Wolves players watched the game on television and were filmed anxiously watching the closing seconds before embracing in celebrations.

Wolves will now focus on claiming the title with only four points needed from their remaining games to ensure they go up as Champions this season.

While Wolves can start planning for life back in the top flight, Birmingham are in grave danger of slipping into the third tier of English football.

Mendes represents head coach Nuno Espirito Santo and star players Ruben Neves, Diogo Jota and Ivan Cavaleiro.

"What he has brought in has been fantastic", Dalrymple told Sky Sports.

The leaders have taken the division by storm this season although their success is not without controversy following their tie-up with Portuguese super-agent Jorge Mendes.

He also has a long association with Chinese group Fosun International, which holds a stake in his company.

The Championship club say Ikeme, 31, returned "abnormal blood tests" during pre-season testing and further checks confirmed the diagnosis.
