Wolves secure Theo Corbeanu to new deal

Wolves have re-signed young-gun Theo Corbeanu on a two-year contract extension.

The 18-year-old has looked impressive for Wolves' U23 side this season and has been rewarded.

On the new deal, Wolves Academy manager Scott Sellars said: "Theo had a good two years in the under-18s, then came back and had a good pre-season, and followed it into the league season. He's been full of confidence and his performances have been excellent for the under-23s – he's got himself a few goals, so a lot of people have been talking about him.

"We feel it was the right time to reward him for what he's done. He's trained with the first-team quite a lot and they're pleased with his progress, so it's a reward for his consistency.

"We've always said, our job, ultimately, is to develop local lads, but then we have to search around England and around the world. Theo came from Canada two years ago and has progressed really well. It shows that the talent is out there, not just in England, and it's our job to try and find them.

"Now, it's up to him to keep working hard. Let's see where this season takes him, but he needs to recognise what's come from his hard work, focus and training, and to keep doing it."
