WOLVES have swooped to sign Eng­land school­boy cap Aaron Simp­son from Non-League Maid­stone United, writes JOSHUA PECK.

The teenage de­fender, pic­tured above left, moves to the Cham­pi­onship side af­ter im­press­ing on trial.

Simp­son, 17, made his de­but in men’s foot­ball only in Jan­uary 2014 for Whit­stable, but stepped up to the Ry­man Pre­mier Stones last sum­mer.

Im­pres­sive per­for­mances in the FA Cup against Steve­nage and Wrex­ham alerted Wolves to his po­ten­tial and he penned a twoyear deal this week.

Simp­son said:“I don’t know too much about how it came about. I think they saw me play in a few games, gave me a trial and of­fered me the deal at the end of the week.

“I liked the club from the minute I came. I think it’s the right move for me.

“Ever since I’ve been young it has been my am­bi­tion to go pro. It’s the ic­ing on the cake for the last year.”
