Austin Samuels spent the first half of this season on loan from Wolves to Aberdeen.
That loan deal was ended earlier this month and he has now sealed a permanent exit from Molineux.
Inverness Caledonian Thistle, who play in the Scottish Championship, have confirmed the signing of Samuels on an 18-month contract.
Samuels has already taken to Twitter to acknowledge the move, which brings to an end his association with he has been with since the age of ten.
He clearly feels it is a move he needs to make at the age of 21 to get regular football after he failed to establish himself in the Aberdeen side.
That said, some of their fans reacted to the move on Twitter, saying that he showed signs of what he could do with the Dons, but not on a consistent basis.
He has now dropped down a level in Scotland, and some of them felt that he could shine at that level with his pace and skill.
Wolves could do with a backup striker, but Bruno Lage has clearly decided that Samuels is not the man to take up that mantle.
ICT face Kilmarnock this afternoon and Samuels will be hoping to make his first involvement and ideally get on the scoresheet.
Looked decent for us, was just never given a chance.— ⭐️Glen⭐️ (@Glen_1903) January 28, 2022
Hes a forward, prefers playing through middle, played out of position at Aberdeen, so I'd take comments about his poor tracking back with a pinch of salt. Rapid. I'd expect him to do well in the championship. All the best to the lad.— R.C. Doig (@RCDoig_Official) January 28, 2022
On the face of it, this is a terrific acquisition for Caley. He didn’t get many minutes with us but he’s got attributes which can rip teams apart. I’d expect him to do really well in the Championship. Fair play Inverness. 👏🏼— Sat-nav 🇦🇹⭐⭐ 🏴 (@Redtom1903) January 28, 2022
great signing for you. Wish he got a chance at Aberdeen but didn’t but you have a good plaher for you— caitlin (@Caitlinlfcx) January 28, 2022
Bradford fans said similar when we signed him, probably be the quickest player in the championship now but will need work to get any end product— ES🇦🇹 (@ES1903_) January 28, 2022
Should be very good at that level, direct, pacey, bit of skill, not so much defensive— Scott Forsyth (@scottyfor) January 28, 2022
Hopefully gets game time good for us was just not given time all the best Austin— Mikkie🔴⚪️🔴⚪️🇲🇨 (@mikkiemurray03) January 28, 2022
He looked quite a handy player. With consistent matches under his belt this guy will get going and make a difference to caley— Crossan (@Crossands83) January 29, 2022
I think there’s a very good player there. Didn’t get the game time with us but think Caley have made a good decision here— Kendal (@kendalmilne_) January 28, 2022
