Recommended Posts

Done Deal 

Wolves can now confirm the signing of exciting Dutch prospect Nigel Lonwijk from PSV Eindhoven.

The 17-year-old defender, who has made his international bow for the Netherlands under-16 side, arrives at Molineux after progressing into PSV’s under-19 side earlier this season.

Head of Academy Scott Sellars said he was delighted to have been able to bring the highly-rated defender to Wolves. “We’re continually looking for talented young players – it’s very much the plan of the football club,” Sellars said. “To be able to get somebody of Nigel’s quality across the line was really pleasing and we’re delighted with the signing.

“He’s very good physically, a good defender one-v-one, and has strong technical ability, so we very much see him fitting into how our system as an outside centre-back. He’s got good physicality as well, so ticks the boxes in many of the things we’re looking for in terms of our centre-back positions.”

The right-footed central defender will join Wolves Academy as a member of Steve Davis’ under-18s squad ahead of their next match in the U18 Premier League North away to Liverpool on Saturday 1st February.
