On Wednesday afternoon, Wolverhampton Wanderers announced the capture of young Oxford United midfielder Tsun Dai.
The 19-year-old came through the youth systems of Eastern Sports Club and Kitchee Academy in Hong King before making the switch to England and joining Reading’s Academy setup in 2012.
After four years with them, he made the move to Bury and went on to make four first team appearances in the 2017/18 campaign, with a further seven showings from the bench and the midfielder did score his maiden goal that year in the EFL Trophy against Fleetwood Town.
Last August he made the switch to Oxford, but having struggled for game time and not made his debut, he spent the second half of the year out on loan with FC Utrecht, playing 12 further times.
The midfielder joins for an undisclosed fee but he has signed a two year deal at the Molineux with a further 12 month options, and he goes into our Under 23 setup for the coming 2019/20 campaign.
Speaking to the Official Website Rob Edwards said of him.
“Dai arrived here at the start of the month and has already settled into the group well. He’s a midfield player who wants to try and get on the ball and he’s got lots of energy. He’s got a good personality and will get an opportunity, like all of our players in the under-23s, to show what he can do. We need to see more of him, as we do with all of our summer signings, because our levels are going to go up this season, especially if we want to close the gap to the first-team. We’ve got to get to know him, but he’s got to get to know us, get to know the way we work, how we do things. So far, he’s made a good first impression.”
Another name to watch out for potentially.
