Double Player of the Year Matt Jarvis today gave Wolves a huge end-of-season boost by declaring he wants to stay at Molineux.

The England international insisted he wants to remain a part of an exciting future at Wolves after winning the Player of the Year award from fans and players at last night's gala end-of-season awards dinner at Telford International Centre.

Jarvis has already been linked with moves to Liverpool and Villa this summer after his dazzling form led to his first England cap against Ghana in March.

But the exciting wideman, who turns 25 on Survival Sunday when Wolves host Blackburn in their winner-takes-all clash, wants to stay to help the club grow in the Premier League.

"It's a club with a great future so why wouldn't I want to stay here?" said Jarvis.

"Of course I'm happy here - I've been enjoying my football. If it wasn't for playing here then I wouldn't have been able to do anything that I've achieved this season. It's a fantastic club and hopefully we can stay up at the weekend."

And Jarvis wants to make his double award a treble by helping Wolves clinch a third successive season in the Premier League.

"It would be a lovely hat-trick to celebrate the awards by staying up, because that's what we all want," he said.


"It's a massive game for everyone and we're all looking forward to it.

"There are no nerves - we know if we get a win on Sunday then that's it, we've got another season in the Premier League, which is where everyone wants to be."

Jarvis has won player of the year and goal of the year gongs at former club Gillingham but admitted this campaign has topped everything.

"It's got to be my best season - so many things have happened, it's been like a rollercoaster and I've enjoyed being on that ride," he added.


"Hopefully it will end the way we all want it to and we can all enjoy our holidays."

Jarvis was delighted to be crowned with both awards but especially pleased to be recognised by his fellow pros. "It was fantastic to get both of them - the fans have watched us all season and it's great to get the plaudits from them, but to get an award from your team-mates as well, it's fantastic to know that they think I'm the best player of the season," he said.

"They see me every single day so it's a great honour from them."
