Wolves have confirmed that Hugo Bueno has signed a new two-year contract with the club.
There is also the option of an extra year for the 18-year-old who joined from Spanish club Arosa in 2019.
Technical director Scott Sellars gave his views to the club website about the deal.
“Since Hugo joined, his attitude and work ethic to improve has been fantastic. He’s changed position, adapting to that and English football, and he’s a really focused young man,” said Sellars.
“He had some great performances in pre-season for the first-team and it’s a good time to give him a new contract. He’s played in the 23s since being a first year scholar, so his progression has been quick, which is down to him.
“He’s a kid who is always working hard, when everyone else has gone home. It’s great to see him rewarded for doing that. He’s a talented player with a great attitude, very competitive.
“We’ll have a look at him. I’d like to think he’ll spend the first half of the year training with the first-team and playing under-23s, and in January we’ll assess the best next step for his development.”
Bueno has an opportunity to catch the eye of Bruno Lage in training in the coming months.
Playing Under 23s football is probably best for him right now, but Sellars has left the door open to him maybe going on loan in January.
At 18, all the signs are very good and Wolves have shown their faith in him with this new deal.
It’s promising to hear Sellars talk up his attitude to training and the fact he does extra work. That work ethic will serve him well after this new deal.
