Wolves’ second year Academy scholars have been informed of the decisions made about their professional contracts.
Defenders Ryan Leak and Connor Johnson, midfelder Ross Finnie and forwards Joe Delacoe and Nicu Carnat have all been offered professional terms.
In addition to those players, midfielders Conor Levingston and Connor Ronan, and striker Bright Enobakhare, have already previously signed professional contracts.
Goalkeeper Rhys Bills, defender Razvan Oaida and midfielder Bradley Lindsey have been informed that they will not be offered professional contracts.
“It is always difficult when these decisions come around, but they are the result of many discussions between coaching staff at different levels of the club,” said Academy Manager Gareth Prosser.
“As we have said many times, the structure in place at Wolves where all of the football staff from the senior team to Academy, are aware of the players we have in the building and those who are coming through.
“It is congratulations to those lads who have been offered their first professional contracts, a reward for the ability they have shown and the work they have put in.
“But it is just the start of it for them – they now have to work even harder and become even better when they become professionals and continue their development.
“For Rhys, Razvan and Bradley, we thank them for their efforts throughout their time at the Academy, and all the hard work they too have put in.
“As with any players who is released by the Club, we will be working closely with them to help with their futures in any way that we can, and we wish them all the very best.”
Academy Under-18s coach Jerry Gill added: “It has been really enjoyable for me to have worked with all of these lads during my first year at Wolves.
“And it is really pleasing that five of the scholars have been offered professional deals, in addition to those three already signed up.
“Congratulations to those lads, but I am sure they are also aware that the next contract now becomes the hardest one to get.
“To the lads that are leaving, we all wish them all the very best and thank them for their work with us during their time in the Academy.
“We will be working closely with them regarding their pathways on leaving the Club and to help them with their future careers."
