George Saville joined Wolves from Chelsea in August, 2014, signing a three-year contract with the club having an option for a fourth.

Saville is a product of the Chelsea Academy, having joined the Blues in 2004. 

The 21-year-old turned professional in 2010 and after impressing in the youth team and reserves was rewarded with a three and a half year contract in 2012. 

During his time at Stamford Bridge Saville enjoyed loan spells at Millwall and, in the 2013/14 season, Brentford, where he helped the Bees to promotion from Sky Bet League 1, featuring 40 times for the Greater London side. 

After initially playing several games for Wolves, Saville then found first team opportunities limited, and spent the closing stages of the 2014/15 campaign on loan with Bristol City.

A three month loan spell with Millwall during the first half of the 2015/16 served Saville well, as he came back to Wolves and impressed during his first real sustained run in the side.

During that time he made 19 appearances, and scored five goals.
