Wolves: Scott Sellars reveals delight at Lee Harkin deal

Wolves: Scott Sellars reveals delight at Lee Harkin deal -Wolves News

Wolves technical director Scott Sellars has revealed his delight after academy forward Lee Harkin committed his future to the club. 

The lowdown: Harkin a hot prospect at Wolves

The 18-year-old is one of the Wanderers’ most exciting youth prospects and earned a first professional contract having signed from Derry City in July 2020.

Since then, the teenager has scored 10 times and provided five assists in 46 appearances for Wolves across the under-23 and under-18 sides.

Having signed a new one-year deal to remain in the Midlands, club chief Sellars has now been praising the youngster…

The latest: Sellars ‘delighted’ for Harkin

Speaking to the club’s official website, Sellars hailed the new contract for Harkin as an impressive statement from the Molineux hierarchy.

He chimed: “We’re always looking at every opportunity, and Lee’s move was before Brexit. He had a lot of options, but how we work as a club, and how we take care of people, were some of the reasons why Lee came and we’re delighted he’s stayed.

“He gets the chance to train with the first-team on a regular basis and Chem and Luke playing for the first-team is great for everybody in the academy and shows there are opportunities at Wolves.

“Lee’s versatile, which is great. In our style of play, inside wingers are very important, and he can do that as well as play down the middle, which is going to benefit him in the long term and present more opportunities.”

What position will Wolves finish in the Premier League this season?

The verdict: Smart move by Wolves

Although Harkin is yet to feature in Bruno Lage’s matchday first-team plans, an opportunity could be forthcoming for the Republic of Ireland youth international in the not-too-distant future.

As Lage attempts to take the club to the next level and compete both domestically and potentially in Europe too, the squad will be tested to its limits, so the best youngsters will almost certainly get their chance to shine as a result.

Therefore, tying down talented prospects such as Harkin is a smart move from Wolves and further proof of the club protecting its prized young assets.
