I know people desperate for first team signings but still good to be improving the u23s and u18s. Welcome Justin

Are you happy that Wolves continue to invest in the youth team?
Yes, bodes well for the future
No, we need first-team players
While there is little known about the Dutch centre-back, he had trained within the first-team set-up of his previous club on occasion (as per Brabants Dagblad).
With the clear intent from the Old Gold that they are happy to invest in the academy sides (as per Birmingham Mail), fans were pleased with the young incoming.
What an addition

Incredible business ?

One fan even called him the next Virgil Van Dijk, which is a huge statement to make, but perhaps the fact that he is also Dutch is where the fan got the comparison from.

I like this, why not take a punt.

What do we think?
As mentioned, there is little known about Hubner, and while some fans may not be over the moon that no first-team players have been signed as of yet, investing in youth is no bad thing.
If the 16-year-old has the talent that the Dutch article suggests (as per Brabants Dagsblad), then the signing could be a very shrewd move from the Molineux club.
