Wolves snap up two youngsters

Wolves have snapped up two youngsters to go into their under-23 setup.

John Kitolano and Joao Caiado

Portuguese midfielder Joao Caiado, 19, has signed from Portugal top flight side Tondela.

The teenager has yet to make a senior appearance and will join up with Rob Edwards' ever-increasing squad this season.

Also joining is left-footed defender John Kitolano. The Norway under-19 international, who was born in Democratic Republic of Congo, joins from Norwegian side Odds BK.

Eighteeen-year-old Kitolano has played 21 times for Odds, who are in the Norwegian top flight.

He was due to become a free agent in January but Wolves have swooped to buy the youngster, who plays at centre half or left back.

Wolves sporting director Kevin Thelwell said of Kitolano: "John is a young player who we have admired since he made his professional debut at the age of 16.

"Since the club’s promotion to the Premier League, it will therefore be an even bigger task to bring young players through from the academy and into the first team.

"John is a player who we feel has that potential and I’m looking forward to seeing how he progresses in the coming months."
