Wolves sign young goalkeeper Moulden

Wolves have completed the signing of England youth international goalkeeper Louie Moulden.

Moulden, 19, has agreed a two-year deal at Molineux, and will become a Wolves player on 1st July after his contract at Manchester City expires next week.

After progressing through the Academy systems at both Liverpool and City, featuring for the under-18 and under-23 sides at the reigning Premier League champions, Moulden secured his move to the West Midlands after a successful trial at Wolves earlier this year.

Moulden saw game time for James Collins’ under-23s in their clash with Premier League 2 Division 2 title winners Leeds United at Aggborough Stadium, in February. 

The son of former top-flight striker Paul Moulden, the stopper also boasts a wealth of international experience, having played at every age group in the Three Lions up to under-19s, including appearances between the sticks for England at the European under-17 championships in 2019.


On signing the prospect, Wolves technical director Scott Sellars said: “Louie is very much a young goalkeeper who has a lot of potential and we believe this is a good opportunity for him to develop at the club.

“When he was here on trial, he really impressed. We knew from his performance in the match that there was a deal to be done, and we just needed the right moment to do it.

“He showed great quality; his distribution is excellent, he’s great with his feet, he’s a very strong shot-stopper, and he’s got a good pedigree, having been at Liverpool and Man City as a kid and playing for England at several levels.

“He’s only 19, but he joins a very good group of young goalkeepers we have at Wolves who will be pushing to be part of the first-team squad next season, and the competition Louie will bring that group is really important.”
