Teenage prospect Kai Corbett was on trial at Wolves during September after leaving West Ham.

Corbett scored in a 3-2 Premier League Cup triumph over Exeter City during his time at the club.

He also played in a 1-1 draw with Burnley’s U23s on the weekend, and missed chances to score in that game too.

But now he has committed his future to another English club, after signing a long-term deal at Peterborough United.

He told the club’s official website: “Peterborough is the best step for me at this moment in my career and I can’t wait to get started. I am ready both physically and technically to try and break into the first team.

“It is why I felt it was the right time to leave West Ham. It was a hard process for me to come to that decision, because I have been at the club a while.

“This club has a great history of bringing through attacking players and giving people an opportunity, it is down to me to try and take that opportunity.

 

“I have watched a few of the games already and there are a lot of matches coming up between now and Christmas. I have met the lads and had one or two training sessions and I feel settled and I can’t wait to push on,”

Who is Kai Corbett?

Corbett scored nine goals and laid five assists for the Hammers at youth level last season.

He is a huge fan of Cristiano Ronaldo and says finishing is his strongest asset.

Wolves have some talented players coming through and brought the likes of Harvey Griffiths and Louie Moulden in from Manchester City in the summer.

They didn’t sign Corbett and now he is looking to kickstart his career in the Championship.
