Nuno Espirito Santo is still waiting for a new contract offer from Wolverhampton Wanderers
The former Porto manager wrote a one-year contract extension last summer, but while Aston Villa boss Dean Smith, Leicester’s Brendan Rodgers and Chris Wilder from Sheffield United recently wrote new terms, Nuno is still waiting for an offer.
“They don’t have that, I had no proposal. There was no proposal for that, “Nuno said when asked about new conversations prior to Friday’s visit to Leicester.
‘I have a contract for another year, so I don’t think about that.
‘I signed last season, I extended another year and I have another year. If you sign something, you stay with it.

‘I am happy with the group of players, the way we work. Yes, I am settled.
“We started three seasons ago, not just me, but many people moved and changed their lives to come to Wolverhampton.
‘Players came with us from day one, that’s why I say it’s my life, because I’m 100 percent here and I give everything I have to help the players improve and help the club.
“We signed it and we are committed to it. They (the fans) can be completely certain every day that Wolves is my obsession, I think of nothing else. “
Wolves are ninth in the Premier League and in the last 32 of the Europa League – where they will be played against Espanyol next week.
The Foxes are third and the win would bring Wolves to the sixth lead for the weekend games and Nuno believes the established order in the division can be disrupted.

“I’m reluctant to call it the” big six, “because I think it’s a very, very, very good competition,” he said.
“Every team is very difficult. What happens this season can happen again next season, but you never know.
“I think the game is changing. There is not much difference between the teams now.
‘All squadrons are impressive in quality and the managers, the way they prepare their teams, improve the quality of the games, so I see smaller gaps between teams.
‘Why? Because of the quality of the players, the financial strength that the clubs need to have to get talented and quality players. “
