Supporters of Wolverhampton Wanderers have shown their delight with the signing of Justin Hubner from Dutch outfit FC Den Bosch.

According to Brabants Dagblad, the Old Gold secured the services of the 16-year-old who is one of the ‘biggest talents’ in the Keuken Kampioen Divisie club’s academy (via Talking Wolves), which had fans delighted.

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.

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.

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.
