Wolves have added another talented young player to the ranks by signing 17-year-old Bradley Reid from Wrexham.
The Welsh-Under-19 international striker worked his way through the ranks at Wrexham and had signed an extended contract with the club in March this year.
Wolves have been monitoring his progress for a considerable time and have now agreed a deal for an undisclosed fee, with Reid completing his medical at the Compton training ground this evening.
The striker has featured in five of Wrexham’s six senior fixtures in the Football Conference this season, and also scored his first goal for the club in the 2-2 draw with Tamworth.
There is the possibility that once international clearance is received, Reid could return to Wrexham on an initial month’s loan to try and build on his early season contribution.
“Bradley is a player, similar to the signings of the young lads announced last week, who will go in with the Under-21 group when he arrives, but can also play at Under-18 level,” said Head of Football Development and Recruitment Kevin Thelwell.
“He is actually a player who we nearly signed at Under-16 level after he’d been scouted by Alan Travis but unfortunately at that stage he suffered an injury.
“We have monitored his progress ever since and are delighted to have agreed a deal with Wrexham to bring him to the club where we are confident he will continue to develop.”
