Converted centre-half Coady has been one of Wolves' more impressive performers this season and been touted for an England call-up.

Gareth Southgate names his latest squad today and Nuno believes he will one day receive Southgate's call about Coady.

"I think yes (I will eventually)," he said. "But this is the decision of Southgate.

"What do I like about him as a player? His ability, his voice, and the way he sees things. I like the player.

"From the beginning, we saw a lot of Wolves games before we took charge and made decisions.

"Some of those were good, some not so good - but that was a good decision (to move Coady to centre half).

"The first day that we started training it was decided Conor was going to play there. After that, we have to see by ourselves if he had what we expect from him.

"It worked out, was a good choice."
