Wolverhampton Wanderers confirmed yesterday that Under 23 starlet Sherwin Seedorf had signed a new two-year deal at the Molineux and then completed a loan move out to League One side Bradford City.

The 20-year-old made the switch to Wolves from the Nike Academy back in February 2017 and played a key role in Scott Sellars’ Under 23 Premier League 2 campaign in 2017/18 and clearly big things are expected from the lad as he heads on out to hopefully make his professional debut and get his first real taste of the game.

He heads out to Valley Parade until January and his new contract keeps him with us until the summer of 2020.

Again, it’s a good step from Wolves identifying those youngsters we believe are capable of making the step up but need a push now with a far greater challenge than Under 23 football can provide. With promotion to the Premier League and the calibre of players we are attracting to the club now, at best the likes of Seedorf could maybe expect a substitute or two in the domestic Cup competitions, but it suits everyone far more if they go out and get even only ten solid appearances at League One or League Two level.

They’ll learn more in even five appearances than they will at Under 23 level and one Cup substitute showing against a higher ranked team.

With all eyes on the season ahead, it’s good to see we are watching the future.
