Chiwome agrees new Wolves contract


Wolves teenager Leon Chiwome has agreed a new contract to keep him at Molineux until 2028, according to The Athletic.

The England Under-18s centre-forward, who is also eligible to represent Zimbabwe in international football, is set to sign a deal that includes an option for a further year.

Chiwome, who made his Premier League debut at the end of last season, joined Wolves’ academy from AFC Wimbledon two years ago.

He is expected to remain at Wolves next season to compete for a place in the matchday squad, allowing fellow academy striker Nathan Fraser to leave on loan for much-needed game time.

Chiwome made three Premier League appearances at the end of last season including two starts.

He scored three goals in nine appearances for Wolves under-21s in Premier League Two.

Chiwome was born in England to a British mother and a Zimbabwean father.

He is teammates with newly capped Zimbabwe international Tawanda Chirewa, who scored his first goal for the country in only his second appearence during the World Cup Qualifier against South Africa in Bloemfontein recently.
