English-Malaysian midfielder joins Wolverhampton Wanderers
Wolverhampton Wanderers have signed young midfielder Hong Wan from Yeovil Town.

The 18-year-old, who was born in London and of Chinese and Malaysian heritage, spent 10 years at Charlton Athletic's academy before joining the Glovers and turning out for their Under-18 team.
"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," he told the club's official website.

Hong became the second footballer of Malaysian heritage to be attached with a current Premier League team after Brighton's Jaami Qureshi.
