Report: Chem Campbell set to sign new contract with Wolves

Talented Wolves youngster Chem Campbell is reportedly set to sign a new contract with the club.

According to The Athletic, the Wales youth international is in line for a new deal at Molineux as a reward for his excellent development recently.

Campbell is now a fully-fledged member of the first-team squad at Wolves.

He was handed his debut by Bruno Lage last season in the Premier League game against Newcastle United in April.

This term, he has made four appearances in the Premier League, coming off the bench in each of the last three.

It could be that Campbell sees a bit more involvement moving forwards following the injury to Pedro Neto.

The Portugal international has sustained ankle ligament damage and has sadly been ruled out of the World Cup in Qatar.

He still has strong competition though in the form of Daniel Podence, Adama Traore, Goncalo Guedes and Hwang Hee-chan.

Campbell has also still been playing for the U21s, and usually looks a cut above at that level.

Campbell is said to be poised to sign a new four-year deal at Molineux. An official announcement on this is expected soon.

It is a brilliant moment for Campbell, who U21s coach James Collins said has ‘always been a very talented boy’ after his debut against Newcastle.

Fantastic news for Chem Campbell, a new contract is richly deserved

This is great news and no less than Campbell deserves.

He has worked extremely hard to get to this point of being on the fringes of the first-team.

He is usually the standout player for the U21s, so it is now about making that jump for Campbell.

To be fair, he has put in a few refreshing cameo performances for the first-team now, and he might just have what it takes to become a regular eventually.

Traore looks set to leave next year when his contract expires, and Campbell might just be someone the club turns to as a potential replacement.
