DAN McKENNA re­ceived the per­fect birth­day present this week as he signed his first pro­fes­sional con­tract with Wolves.

The deal keeps the 17year-old Ir­ish mid­fielder, who cel­e­brated his birth­day last Mon­day, at the club un­til at least the sum­mer of 2019.

“It was a great day for me to sign my first pro­fes­sional con­tract and even bet­ter to have my fam­ily over as well,” he said.

“They have played a big part in my foot­ball ever since I was a young kid and my mum used to drive me to all the games back home.

“It is a great step for me. I am re­ally set­tled here at Wolves and en­joy­ing the sea­son.”
