Wolverhampton Wanderers sign young forward Jake Cassidy

Wolverhampton Wanderers

Wolves have signed teenage striker Jake Cassidy from Welsh Premier League club Airbus after he impressed on trial.

The 17-year-old has penned a two-year deal with the option of another year after an undisclosed fee was agreed.

Cassidy showed his potential with seven pre-season goals for Wolves and will join their development squad.

Chief executive Jez Moxey told the club's website: "We are always looking for young players and Jake fits the bill so we are delighted he is here."

Cassidy had only just joined Airbus from Llandudno Junction and leaves without playing a competitive game for the club.

Cassidy commented: "I wanted to progress and was pleased to go to Airbus and was looking forward to a season in the Welsh Premier League.

"But Wolves are a great club who made me feel really welcome from the moment I arrived so I aim to be in the manager's thoughts at some point."
