Jody Craddock has admitted he is ready to quit football if he is not offered another deal with Wolves.

The 37-year-old defender joined the West Midlands outfit in July 2003 and is the club's longest serving player.

His current 12-month deal is set to run out in the summer and the former Sunderland man admits he will walk away from the game to concentrate on his career as an artist rather than try his hand at a lower level.

"I will be at Wolves or I won't play any more," he said.

"If I had left Wolves earlier I'd have been looking to move down the divisions to carry on playing.

"It was never a problem for me because I've been there before but, at the age I am now, I don't think that would be the case anymore."
