23 May 2019 : Wolves Confirm Hong Wan Signature
Premier League side Wolverhampton Wanderers have now confirmed the signature of former Yeovil Town Academy midfielder Hong Wan. The 18 year old was pictured at Molineux yesterday, and reported as having signed a two year contract with the club. That has now been fully confirmed, with his arrival coming as a free agent, after the Glovers decided to release him in March. Since then he has been trialling at other clubs, which included a spell at Luton Town under the watchful eye of former Yeovil Town Head of Coaching Steve Rutter who is their assistant manager there.

However, he has since moved on to Wolves, where he has been spending a couple of weeks training with them and they have now openly revealed his signature. Academy manager Scott Sellars has said of the deal:

"With every player we look at bringing in to the Academy, first and foremost they must have the ability. Hong's been training with us recently and definitely has the ability, but he also has a great personality and clearly loves playing football. We're hoping he's going to bring these qualities to Wolves and expect him to fit in well with the programme we have in place in the Academy. In all aspects, this deal works for everybody as we are bringing in a player who we believe has a lot of potential and we can also give him the time at Wolves which he needs to develop into a promising player."

Hong was born in Croydon and went to school in Orpington, and had been on the books of Charlton Athletic for nearly ten years until the age of 16. He then spent just under two years at Yeovil Town before getting the chance to secure a deal elsewhere. He says he sees Wolves as a great opportunity for his career:

"It's a great opportunity and I'm very grateful to have been given a chance to be at such a great club. We've all seen how well Wolves have played this season, not just the first-team but the under-23s as well, and it's certainly a club that's on the rise. It's a great feeling to be part of it. I was captain of the Under-18s at Yeovil Town last season and we had a good run where we reached the highest ever placing of the club at that age group, so I had a very good season there, but I'm excited to now be here at Wolves. I would love to crack on and get myself in and around the Under-23s next season, hopefully break into the team, and then I hope to make the step up into the first team."
