Otasowie makes Wolves exit

Wolves Academy graduate Owen Otasowie has completed a permanent move to Club Brugge.

The 20-year-old’s move is the latest success story for the Wolves Academy, who developed Otasowie into a full international and Premier League player.

The youngster was spotted by Wolves scouts playing for Mass Elite Academy in London at the age of 15 in 2017 and progressed through the under-18s and under-23s groups, to make his first team debut in 2019.

Otasowie went on to make six Premier League appearances and now moves to Belgium, in a transfer Wolves technical director Scott Sellars described as a “great move for all parties”.

He said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for Owen to further his career. Our academy brought a boy from London at 15 and really developed him to become a full international and play in Premier League, which shows the great work being done here.

“Our job is to develop players to fulfil their potential. If it’s to play in our first-team then great, but it is obviously very difficult to make the grade in the Premier League, so if it means we’ll develop them and sell them, that is an important part of our strategy as well.

“In this case we have worked hard to develop Owen as a player and a person, and we have turned a young prospect into a multi-million pound player, and that will only benefit the Wolves Academy and our other young players coming through.”
