Get To Know | Luke Cundle

It's been an impressive year for young midfielder Luke Cundle, who made his first-team debut when he appeared as a second-half substitute in the penalty shootout victory over Reading in the Carabao Cup.

Cundle was also part of the senior squad which travelled to Shanghai last summer, coming off the bench in both of Wolves’ successful Premier League Asia Trophy matches as the side beat Manchester City in the final, and he is the next Academy star to give an insight into his life, both on and off the pitch.
