Wolves have snapped up promising Welsh striker Jake Cassidy from Airbus after an impressive trial with the club.

The 17-year-old has put pen to paper on a two-year-contract with a further year's option in Wolves' favour having joined from the Welsh Premier League club for an undisclosed fee.

Cassidy spent last week on trial at Wolves, featuring in the academy's friendly against Coventry and then scoring an excellent individual goal in the development squad's 4-2 win at Telford on Tuesday.

Talks took place both before and after the weekend before Cassidy completed the final part of his medical last night to allow the deal to go through.

Brought up in Glan Conwy in North Wales, Cassidy played football as a youngster and joined Llandudno Junction in the Welsh Alliance as a 16-year-old, scoring 28 goals in 32 games last season.

That earned him the step-up to the Welsh Premier League with Airbus, where his seven goals in seven pre-season friendlies, including strikes against Wrexham and a young Everton XI, caused plenty of interest.
