Wolverhampton Wanderers confirmed that Chem Campbell signed his first professional deal. The 17-year-old has been rewarded for his fine form in the academy and will now look to develop in the u23s with a view to representing the first-team on a regular basis.
In addition to being an advanced playmaker, Campbell can also operate as a wide-forward and in a deep-lying midfield role too.
He’s already made his debut at senior level this season, playing 68 minutes in Wolves’ EFL Cup defeat to Aston Villa (October 30) as a 16-year-old. Campbell also featured in Wolves’ EFL Trophy defeat to Blackpool (November 5).
As per Transfermarkt, the Wales u17 international was promoted from the u18s to the u23s in October and trained with the first-team in November. If Campbell impresses in the reserves, Nuno has already shown he’ll give him opportunities.
Morgan Gibbs-White (aged 19), Pedro Neto (19) and Ruben Vinagre (20) have all featured under the Wolves manager. The majority of the senior squad are under the age of 25 too, so young players definitely have the right environment to develop.
Campbell could be one to watch.
