Thanks to everyone to do with Wolves and everyone in football I have met." Ikeme's decision to retire has come after consulting medical experts and he told his team-mates on Tuesday. "The doctor suggested I should retire after the toll the treatment has taken on my body.

I can't really risk trying to come back," he told the Wolves website. "My health is my main thing. I just want to be here for my children, family and friends.
