The 21-year-old will spend the 2018/19 season playing for the south-coast club in League One after playing most of Wolves' Championship-winning season in the under-23s.

Burgoyne made his first-team debut in a 4-4 draw against Fulham at Molineux in 2016/17 and went on to make seven appearances that season.

His finest hour came when he played 90 minutes in Wolves' famous 2-1 victory over Liverpool in the FA Cup Fifth Round at Anfield.

Burgoyne was Wolves' third-choice stopper behind John Ruddy and Will Norris last season, with his only Championship appearance coming as a substitute for Norris in Wolves' 3-0 loss away at Sunderland in May.

The Ludlow-born keeper was an unused substitute for England under-21s in their 2-1 win over Romania in the Cyrille Regis International at Molineux in March.

Wolves are expected to bring in a keeper this summer ahead of their return to the Premier League and are keen on signing Portugal keeper Rui Patricio.

The team starts its first top-flight season since 2012 at home to Everton on August 11.
