Hong Kong midfielder Tsun Dai has joined Wolverhampton Wanderers from Oxford United
SCMP reports that Hong Kong midfielder Tsun Dai has joined Premier League side Wolverhampton Wanderers.
Tsun had previously played for Bury FC and most recently, League Two team Oxford United.
The 19-year-old has signed a two year deal with the club’s U23s with an option to extend to an extra year.
On the club’s website, U23s boss Rob Edwards said of the young footballer, “Dai arrived here at the start of the month and has already settled into the group well. He’s a midfield player who wants to try and get on the ball and he’s got lots of energy.”
“He’s got a good personality and will get an opportunity, like all of our players in the under-23s, to show what he can do,” Edwards continued. “We need to see more of him, as we do with all of our summer signings, because our levels are going to go up this season, especially if we want to close the gap to the first-team.”
“We’ve got to get to know him, but he’s got to get to know us, get to know the way we work, how we do things. So far, he’s made a good first impression.”
Tsun will be the fifth Chinese player at the club, joining Ming-yang Yang, Hong Wan, Dongda He and David Wang.
Wolves owner Guo Guangchang, who also owns international conglomerate Fosun, hopes to sign a Chinese player to the team’s first team.
Wang was signed in January but was immediately loaned to Sporting Lisbon due to visa regulations.
In May, Wolves signed 18-year-old British born Chinese midfielder Hong.
