Wolves have become the first Premier League side to make a move in the transfer window by signing young Spanish winger David Wang.
The 18-year old has joined the club from Spanish fourth-division side Jumilla B (Estudiantes) but Wolves fans who hope to see him wearing the old gold shirts will have to wait a while, as he has already been sent out on loan to Portuguese side Sporting Lisbon until the end of the season.
According to The Daily Mail, the right-footed winger, who can already speak English and Chinese as well as his native Spanish, will feature in Sporting’s B side, as he continues his development away from the limelight.
Wang was born in Cuenca in central Spain, and is of Chinese ethnicity. He started playing at a young age on small, hard futsal courts, and spent last season on loan with AE Josep Maria Gene, scoring 3 goals in 24 appearances.
Andy is an exiled English football fan living in Cyprus. He loves all sports but football is his abiding passion, and he still has dreams every now and then about scoring the winning goal in a Wembley Cup Final, even though his playing days are long gone. He follows most major leagues, across Europe at least, and has a favoured team in each. When he’s not watching, listening, reading or downloading podcasts about football, he spend his time worrying about his beloved Arsenal.
