Teenage midfielder Harvey Griffiths was Wolves’ only arrival on deadline day.

That might not have been the high-profile midfield signing Wolves needed, but he is a promising addition.

Under 23 manager James Collins is already a fan, after Griffiths made his debut in the Papa John’s Trophy hours after joining.

Scott Sellars is also impressed and Griffiths has now sent a message to Wolves fans after his arrival was confirmed.

There were well wishes in the replies from young Manchester United duo Charlie McNeil and Joe Hugill.

Griffiths has moved down to Wolves from the blue half of Manchester, and he’s not the first player to do so this summer.


Louie Moulden and Joe Hodge have already trodden the same path, thanks in part to Sellars’ connections with his old club Manchester City.

Wolves fans will hope that Griffiths gets a chance to progress beyond youth football at some stage.

The club have loaned out a huge amount of players this summer and the challenge for them is integrating them into the first team.

Owen Otasowie left this summer, and there is a school of thought to suggest he needed more opportunities.

All that lies ahead of Griffiths after making his move and following it up with an impressive debut against League 1 opposition in Wigan.
