Teenager Dexter Lembikisa has signed his first professional contract with Wolves.
Wolves technical director Scott Sellars has had his say on the new deal, speaking to the club website.
“Dexter came to us as a 13-year-old but in the last 15 months, he’s really kicked on with his development. He has progressed really well and is now playing regularly with the under-23s.
“His performances have been excellent. Dexter has always worked really hard on all aspects of his game. It’s because of his hard work that we’ve really seen the benefits in how he’s developed.
“For us, age is irrelevant, it’s about how you play and perform. Dexter has had a really good opportunity to kick on this season by being put into a challenging situation.
“But what he has to do now is keep working hard and keep showing that same mentality to want to learn which has got him to this point in his career. If he keeps improving every day, the rest will take care of itself.”
Now, the 18-year-old has taken to Instagram to celebrate the announcement, on what he said was a ‘proud’ day.
The hard work starts now for the teenager, who must try and kick on after the new deal.
He has already risen through the Under-18s to the Under-23s this season, which is a sign of his quality.
And now the 18-year-old needs to keep on progressing and improving.
