Campbell made his first-team debut for Wolves last season against Newcastle United in the Premier League.

He has since gone on to make six appearances for the first-team.

Campbell has seen minutes this season, and has impressed with his confidence and directness.

Given the injury to Pedro Neto, and other players like Goncalo Guedes and Hwang Hee-chan being out of form, there is genuine potential for Campbell to have a bit more involvement moving forwards.

The club have high hopes for the Wales youth international, which is evidenced by this new contract.

Technical director Scott Sellars said (via Wolves official): “We are obviously delighted with Chem’s progress over the last few years, especially the form he has shown with the U23s.

“He has now progressed to the first-team squad having been a player who would regularly train with them. He’s also had experience coming on in a difficult period, but has shown a lot of quality and a lot of character in his appearances with the first-team already.

“We want him to keep doing what he’s doing, keep believing in himself and get more experiences of playing, as that will give him even more confidence and belief.

“But he has certainly shown what he can do at youth level, so now we would like him to score the goals and create the chances that he has for the 23s at first-team level. That’s got to be his target.”

Chem Campbell thoroughly deserves new Wolves deal, he must now try to push the senior players

This is great to see and no less than Campbell deserves.

He has been brilliant for the U23s for a long time now, and is a cut above that level.

It’s great to see that he has been given minutes for the first-team – Bruno Lage should get some credit for that.

He must now make it his goal to try and really push the likes of Daniel Podence and Adama Traore.

He’s looked great when coming on in games this season. It would be fantastic to see him actually start some time, as Luke Cundle got the chance to do a couple of times last term.
