Despite Wolves struggling near the foot of the table all season, Jarvis impressed with his form and earned his first England cap against Ghana at Wembley in March. To top a successful season, he also helped his club side to preserve their Premier League status.

He said: "The England call-up was a huge boost for me and to actually play part of the game was massive. It was a life-long ambition but it has whetted my appetite for more of the same and hopefully I can get back in there during the coming season.

"Everyone strives to do better than the season before and that counts for me as well. I think I can still improve. I want to play as many games as possible, score more goals and hopefully that will help me to get back in the England squad."

Wolves recently completed the permanent signing of Jamie O'Hara from Tottenham and are expected to make further additions to their squad.
