Wolves sign youngster Daniel Armstrong

Sport | Published:

Wolves today brought in another 'one for the future' after completing the signing of young attacker Daniel Armstrong on a three-year deal.

The club have been on the trail of the 18-year-old for months, with the Scottish youth international now rubber-stamping his Molineux move.

The teenager is a product of the same Hamilton Academical youth system that produced Premier League players James McCarthy and James McArthur.

Armstrong will go straight into Scott Sellars' Under-21 squad and could make his home debut against their Blackburn counterparts on Friday.

Head of football development and recruitment Kevin Thelwell explained: "We managed to secure a release for him in the last transfer window.

"We've been waiting for him to make a decision on where he wanted to go. He came and visited the football club, as he knew that we'd been tracking him for a long time.

"He decided that we were going to be the club for him and we're delighted to see that he's joined us.

"He's highly technical, he's very good with his feet, he can play wide and he can play off the front.

"He's got good pace and has a natural left foot which is hard to come by. I think he'll be a really good addition for us."


Armstrong thinks his Wolves move is "amazing" and feels he has the ability to make a name for himself under Sellars' stewardship.

He said: "I've been so impressed with everything that's happened. It's a great place and it feels like the right place for me.

"When I got here everybody was so nice, they made me feel comfortable. I felt that, if I play the way I know I can play, then I'd be given the chance to push on as much as I can.

"I'm looking forward to meeting a new group of players and a different challenge. I just want to kick on and push myself into that Under-21 team as fast as I can."
