Ming-Yang Yang is in the final six months of his deal at Wolverhampton Wanderers and doesn’t look likely to be handed a contract extension after failing to make a first-team appearance in two-and-a-half years.

The 24-year-old joined on a three-year deal from FC Winterthur in 2017 and has resided in the u23s. He wasn’t included in Wolves’ 23-man Premier League squad in September, so the writing has been on the wall for some time.

Ming-Yang Yang was loaned out to Segunda Division B side Jumila (July 1, 2018 – June 30, 2019) to get regular playing time and went on to make 30 appearances in all competitions. The Spanish third tier isn’t close to the level required to play under Nuno Espirito Santo, however.

Where do the club most need to invest in January?

And with Ruben Neves, Leander Dendocker and Joao Moutinho ahead of Ming-Yang Yang in the pecking order, he was never likely to get much first-team football. As a result, it’s hard to see him being handed a new deal.

Whether Wolves can find a buyer for the former Swiss u20 international remains to be seen, however. There hasn’t been a lot of interest this season, so he may run his contract down until July.
