Wolverhampton Wanderers have suffered a blow in their pursuit of Tyrese Campbell, with the 20-year-old signing a new deal at Stoke City. His contract was set to expire in July and his future looked to be away from the Britannia Stadium, but Campbell has committed his future until 2024.
Wolves are in the market for a new centre-forward as Raul Jimenez is short of backup after Patrick Cutrone was loaned out to Fiorentina. They’ve already brought in Leonardo Campana from Barcelona SC Guayaquil to develop in the reserves and have been in talks with AEK Athens over Nelson Oliveira.
The Midlands outfit were linked with Campbell earlier this month but hadn’t made an official approach. Wolves had stiff competition from Celtic, Rangers, Crystal Palace, Bournemouth and RB Leipzig too, so they may have struggled to beat out so many clubs to his signature.
Nevertheless, Campbell has made their decision for them by extending his contract at Stoke. The England u20 international has contributed five goals in his last five league games and clearly feels he’s better of staying with the Potters to develop.
