Wolverhampton Wanderers fans here in the Tavern are hoping for a top-half finish next season, with the summer transfer window being of huge importance.
Indeed, Wolves managed to secure promotion to the Premier League and the Championship title this season. Although, they wouldn’t have been able to do this without a number of previous transfer window signings, as the likes of Diogo Jota, Willy Boly, Barry Douglas and Ruben Neves all worked wonders.
But, with Premier League football now secured for next season, Jeff Shi may want Nuno Espirito Santo to promote a couple of the club’s promising young players. Indeed, Wolves will splash the cash this summer in preparation for their first season back in the top-flight, however, the club’s future very much lies with a number of exciting products that are currently playing their football in the youth ranks.
With that being said, Shi must be begging Santo to promote these TWO youngsters…
Oskar Buur Rasmussen
The Danish right-back netted a dramatic equaliser against Hull City in the Championship this season in what was his league debut. However, this wasn’t his first appearance in the first-team, as the 20-year-old featured in the Carabao Cup towards the start of the season against Bristol Rovers.
Oskar Buur Rasmussen loves to take his man on and whip a ball into the box, but Matt Doherty was superb last season for Wolves so it was impossible for him to enjoy a number of games in the side.
So, having seen that he can deliver in the Championship under pressure, perhaps Nuno Espirito Santo should look to give him a chance in the first-team next season.
Harry Burgoyne joined the Wolves academy at 11 years of age and has been with the club ever since, progressing through the ranks before making his first team debut at Molineux in a Sky Bet Championship fixture against Fulham.
The ‘keeper went on to make seven appearances for the Club in the 2016/17 season, including Wolves’ 2-1 Fourth Round Emirates FA Cup win over Liverpool at Anfield.
However, in recent seasons, the 21-year-old has also enjoyed loan spells with Lowestoft Town, Corby Town, Telford United and Barnet to gain vital first team experience.
So, with John Ruddy coming under fire last season for a number of unforced errors, perhaps Wolves should look to give Burgoyne a chance in cup competitions or maybe even in the Premier League.
