Wolverhampton Wanderers managing director Laurie Dalrymple revels in the club's promotion to the Premier League.

Wolverhampton Wanderers managing director Laurie Dalrymple has admitted that he is "thrilled" and "elated" about the club winning promotion to the Premier League.

Wolves' top-flight status was confirmed at the weekend when Fulham were held to a 1-1 draw by Brentford.

One day later, Nuno Espirito Santo's side defeated Birmingham City 2-0 to move within touching distance of the Championship title.

"This is the culmination of a huge amount of hard work from everyone within the club...from the players, the coaching team, the management team and the fans, I can't say enough about the fans this year they've just been absolutely amazing," Dalrymple told Sky Sports News.

"We're thrilled. Everyone's hugely elated.

He added: "We've just been focusing as much as possible in the short term but clearly in some of the areas you have to be a bit more forward thinking. We've done some planning but we've been largely focused on getting the job done this season.

"Planning for next season is a nice problem to have."

Wolves are one point away from clinching the title ahead of this weekend's trip to struggling Bolton Wanderers.
