Jackett and Thelwell pleased with signing

Wolves believe they have signed both the “right player and the right person” in 25-year-old Tommy Rowe.

The versatile left-sider has agreed a two-year contract to join Wolves when his contract with Peterborough expires, becoming Wolves’ first signing of the summer ahead of the return to the Sky Bet Championship.

And the club feel that as well as the quality Rowe can bring to the team on the pitch, his personality and leadership skills – he was Peterborough’s captain for the last two seasons – will also be a good addition behind the scenes as well.

Head Coach Kenny Jackett revealed that he has been charting Rowe’s progress for a considerable time.

“I am very pleased that Tommy has agreed to join us,” said Jackett.

“He is a player who I have followed for quite some time having seen him be a part of some very good sides at Peterborough.

“I view him mainly as a midfield player and hopefully he will be able to settle in and be an excellent signing for us.”

Head of Football Development and Recruitment Kevin Thelwell says Wolves have landed a “driven and determined” player.

“It’s a really good signing for us and is going to be a fantastic addition to the squad,” said Thelwell.

“Tommy is a naturally left footed player who is also versatile to the extent that I don’t think you could pin him down to his best position.

“He has played at left back, wide left or on the left of centre midfield.

“He is a really good addition to the squad and everyone we have talked to has spoken very highly of him.

“From his performances both in League One and the Championship we think he is going to do really well for us.

“His attitude is also very professional – he is very driven and very determined.

“Off the pitch he is going to fit in really well and he is going to move his family here as well which is always a really good indication.

“Not only do I think we have got the right player but the right person as well and hopefully the fans will see that in due course.”
