Hahnemann: 'We're really settled in'

[AMERICANS ABROAD] Goalie Marcus Hahnemann, picked up by the USA for the 2010 World Cup after a strong season at Wolves, got more good news on Wednesday when the English Premier League club extended his contract for another season.

Hahnemann, 37, had a clause in his agreement that called for a contract extension if Wolves stayed up after being promoted in 2009 -- it finished in 15th place, eight points above the relegation zone -- and if he made a certain number of appearances -- he started 25 straight games.

He was signed as a free agent from Reading, where he spent seven seasons, and began the season as a backup goalkeeper to Wayne Hennessey.

"I'm really enjoying it here and we've really settled in," he told the wolves.co.uk. "My wife is happy, the kids are happy and I've got another shot at the Premier League. It always seems to be that little bit tougher the second season. We were on a very quick learning curve this season but now we've faced everyone we know exactly what it is we'll have to do. Our team has got stronger as the year went on. At Reading, we had a great start and surprised a lot of people and those early points kept us up. At Wolves, we steadily got better and it started to really click from about halfway onwards."

The popular Hahnemann, whose play brought chants of "USA" from the Molineaux faithful, also won the "Wolves Community Trust Player of the Season" award in recognition of his community service work over the past year.
