Wolves agree deal for Monaghan Utd keeper McCarey

Monaghan United keeper Aaron McCarey has agreed a move to Wolves.

The 17-year-old was at Molineux with his family earlier this week to agree the deal.

McCarey, who is first choice keeper for the Republic of Ireland-based side, will become a Wolves player when the transfer window re-opens in January.

The Irishman will work under Wolves' goalkeeping coach Pat Mountain and initially be part of Steve Weaver's development squad.

Mountain told the Express & Star: "Aaron came in for three days recently for us to have a look at him. Steve and I also went to watch him play for Monaghan.

"We've had lots of positive reports on him and were also impressed by what we saw in the game when he did really well.

"He's been playing mens' football in Ireland but has only ever trained part-time, so coming in on a full-time basis working with better standard goalkeepers and playing more games should help him to kick on.

"With Daniel Wright having to retire, we've been looking at recruiting a keeper of that age and Aaron is a good prospect with potential for the future."

Wright was forced to retire last month because of a heart problem.
