Zimbabwean teenager Tawanda Chirewa this week officially joined English Premiership side Wolverampton Wanderers junior team on a four-year contract.

The deal was completed on Monday, and the 19-year-old joined Wolves from Ipswich Town.

Indications are that the talented midfielder turned down Ipswich’s offer to settle for the Wolves, where he will feature for the Under-21 side.

Chirewa made his senior debut for Ipswich in November 2019.

Commenting on Charewa’ s arrival on their website, Academy manager for football, Jon Hunter-Barrett, said: “It’s one that we’re delighted to get over the line. We’ve been watching Tawanda for a while now, since the age of 16, and monitoring his progress before picking the right opportunity to approach and get him across for his services.

“His key qualities are his handling of the ball in tight areas and an ability to get the team up the pitch to create and score from deep areas.

“As always, with one of our key strategies of looking at loan opportunities for our players at the right time, the departures of Harvey (Griffiths) and Alfie (Pond) and steady progression of one or two others into the first-team squad, it was important we strengthened our under-21s to ensure they have the ability to compete throughout the season.”

Chirewa will also play along with other Zimbabweans in the form of Joshua Nyakudya and Leon Chiwome.
