21-year-old Bright Enobakhare has always clearly been a lad with talent, but most Wolverhampton Wanderers fans knew there were areas of his game he needed to work on, especially if he was going to have any kind of future with us following our revolution under head coach Nuno Espirito Santo.
Having come through the youth ranks at the Molineux, he does have 21 starting appearances in the Old Gold, with a further 28 showings from the substitutes bench and he returned three goals across those games.
He did make 26 appearances (two goals) during our Championship title winning season of 2017/18, but he wasn’t in the first team picture for the Premier League and headed out to Kilmarnock -making only six appearances (two starts). He was brought back and loaned out again in the January window, but he’s had far more success and has taken plenty of praise with local side Coventry City. In 17 matches, he’s scored six times and seems to have found his feet with them.
With his deal up over the summer, according to the Birmingham Mail he posted ‘I’m staying’ on social media along with a sky blue heart much to their fans’ delight, but speaking to the Coventry Telegraph he admitted it wasn’t actually quite that simple, as although it’s maybe unlikely, Wolves continue to hold a 12 month option on him and he doesn’t yet know what we plan to do about it.
“I have a one year option at Wolves, in the club’s favour I think. I think they are talking to my agent but I don’t know what’s going on. We will see before the end of the season.”
