Tsun Dai has completed a move to China Super League team Shenzhen FC following a year of successful development at the Wolves Academy.
The midfielder spent 12 months at Molineux, following a move from Oxford United last summer, and made seven appearances for the under-23.
Wolves head of Academy Scott Sellars said: “We’re delighted Tsun has got an important move in his career. We saw his potential at Oxford and hoped we could develop him and he’s done really well this year and got himself a fantastic opportunity to really progress and be successful in a new stage of his career."
A huge onus is on player development within the Academy, with Dai the latest player to earn an exciting move on the back of time in the West Midlands, and Sellars hopes the continued success story will help encourage future talents to Molineux.
“Ultimately, the football club spends a lot of money and time working with young players, whether they’re six in the Academy or 20 playing under-23s football. If we’re successful in our development programme, then we’ll get the benefit, sometimes financially, but mainly through the player having a fantastic career.
“The club, across every facet, is a very positive place to be. Whether that’s playing in the first-team or in the Academy.
“The staff have worked really hard with Tsun and he’s had some really good performances, and with this opportunity we’re really pleased for him and wish him a lot of success.”
