​Wolves defender Kilman already missing Coady after Everton switch

Wolves defender Max Kilman is already missing departed teammate Conor Coady.

The veteran has joined Everton on a season long loan in search of regular first team football.

Kilman was asked whether he would stay in touch with Coady, and confirmed the two were extremely close on and off the field.

"Since I first came to the club he put his arm around me," Kilman told Sky Sports News.

"When I came up from the U23s every time I trained with the first team, he was always there and he gave me advice and we became good friends.

"Even last season, he would always give me advice and helped me on and off the pitch, so I can only say good things about him and I wish him all the best, of course."

Kilman added: "I feel like, since Conor has left, some players need to step up.

"I feel like I'm one of them and I embrace the challenge. I know what I need to do and I need to make sure I do it. I'm not loud or outgoing but I like to talk to the players... maybe on a smaller and quieter level.

"There's different ways of doing it and I know my ways. I'll try my best and make sure I'm there to be as supportive as I can."
