Former Wolves prospect Harley O’Grady-Macken has signed for Blackburn as a first year scholar.
The club’s website confirmed him among their latest youth intake on Tuesday.
The talented youngster took to Instagram to post on his story about the news, and share his dad’s post about the news.
O’Grady-Macken started out at Manchester United, captaining their U13s despite being a year younger.
Plenty of young players switch clubs before they make it into the first team.
It might be that he feels that being at the Championship club gives him a greater chance of breaking into the first team.
The move also sees him go back to the north-west, where he may well feel more settled. That’s important for a young player.
There will be more high profile comings and goings at Molineux this summer as Bruno Lage looks to get his squad ready for his maiden campaign in charge.
It remains to be seen whether O’Grady-Macken makes the grade as a professional.
If he does, Wolves might regret letting him go but we’re a long way off that stage yet.
In the meantime, their own talented local midfielder Taylor Perry will get a chance to impress in pre-season.
