First summer signing checks in

Wolves are pleased to announce the signing of Tommy Rowe, who has agreed to join the club after his contract with Peterborough expires.

Rowe has put pen to paper on a two-year deal to join Wolves after spending five years at London Road.

The left-sided 25-year-old can play in several positions but primarily as either a left midfielder or left back.

Rowe started out on schoolboy terms with Manchester United before joining Stockport County, where he made his debut in January, 2007.

During his spell at Stockport he helped the club earn promotion to Sky Bet League One in the 2007/08 season at the end of which he was named Young Player of the Year.

Having scored 13 goals in 85 appearances for Stockport, Rowe then joined Peterborough in May, 2009, where he has made a further 199 appearances and chipped in with 27 goals.

Rowe scored in the 2010/11 play-off final win over Huddersfield at Old Trafford which took Posh into the Championship, and was a mainstay in the team in the subsequent two Championship seasons, including scoring at Molineux in a 3-0 victory against Wolves.

Rowe, who has been Peterborough’s captain for the last two seasons, made 43 appearances during the 2013/14 campaign which saw Peterborough reach the play-offs before being beaten over two legs by Leyton Orient.

They did win the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy, Rowe lifting the cup at Wembley after a 3-1 victory over Chesterfield.

Peterborough confirmed last month that Rowe would be leaving prompting interest from several clubs, and Wolves have moved quickly to land the midfielder well in advance of returning for pre-season training later this month.

*Reaction to Tommy’s arrival at Wolves will follow shortly.
