Wolverhampton Wanderers youngster Chem Campbell has signed a new two-and-a-half year contract with the club.
The talented teenager has been rewarded for his hard work and progress recently, after suffering a serious injury – a stress fracture to his back – earlier in the season.
Campbell will be a name familiar to plenty of Wolves supporters, after he became the club’s second-youngest player when he featured in the EFL game against Aston Villa last season.
That remains his only first-team appearance so far, and the hope is that more will soon follow for the forward.
Scott Sellars said of the Wales U17 international’s new deal: “This contract is all about the hard work that Chem’s put in. He had a bad injury but worked really hard in that period and showed really good character – he’s grown up a lot.
“Now, he’s fighting to get back in the team, and hopefully he can get some more games before the end of this season. Next year will be a big one for him, we’re really pleased with his progress and this is his reward.”
Campbell, who is into his fifth year at Molineux, has today taken to Instagram to mark his proud day.
He wrote: “New deal. We thank God #wwfc.”
There have been plenty of responses from fans.
Several of his teammates, like Luke Matheson, Theo Corbeanu, Hong Wan, Taylor Perry, Austin Samuels and first-teamer Owen Otasowie have also extended their congratulations, as has Sunderland loanee Dion Sanderson.
