Wolverhampton Wanderers are reportedly taking an interest in some of Cardiff City’s most talented youngsters.

Academy insiders have apparently told Wales Online that a number of clubs are looking at some of their best U15s and U16s at the moment.

Apparently, Manchester City, Liverpool, Leeds United, Aston Villa and Fulham are all circling as well as Wolves.

The Championship side have worked hard to revamp their academy structure recently.

There is new focus on promoting from within, given the new difficulties of signing young players from overseas due to Brexit rules.

There is now a clearer pathway to the first-team for youngsters at Cardiff, and it seems the U15 and U16 age group are home to a string of particularly talented players.

It is not stated who Wolves might be looking at in particular, but the report does talk about an older player Kieron Evans, an 18-year-old attacking midfielder who is being tracked by Newcastle United, Burnley, West Brom and Sheffield United.

Wolves looking to the future

It is good to hear that Wolves are looking to bring in talented young players.

By all accounts, Cardiff’s academy is teeming with talent as a result of the recent revamp.

Hopefully the club can prise one or two away and they can ultimately develop and potentially make it into the first-team some day.
