Nigeria's Carl Ikeme Models Wolves' Next Season Kit

Nigeria goalkeeper Carl Ikeme has modelled Wolverhampton Wanderers' new home and away goalkeepers kits for the 2016-17 season.

The unveiling  was revealed on the club's official website on Tuesday.

A statement on the club's website on the new kits reads: "The new home 'keepers kit is predominately black and the away kit pink. Both kits have been designed by our official kit supplier PUMA and feature contrast colour blocking down the sleeves, creating a striking flash of colour.

"The shirts are made from 100% polyester, with a stylised round neck collar and ribbed cuff for improved comfort and fit. There are underarm mesh panels to provide advanced movement and ventilation, and a contrast colour hem gives a contemporary look and feel to the kits."

Wolverhampton finished 14th in the English Championship final league table last season, with Ikeme featuring in 34 league appearances.

He was also on duty for Nigeria in their two international friendly games against Mali and Luxembourg.

Ikeme had started the season as Wolves' second choice but following an injury to Arsenal loanee Emiliano Martinez, the Nigerian took over and retained his spot for the rest of the season.
