Wolves youngster Dexter Lembikisa pens pro terms

 Wolves youngster Dexter Lembikisa has signed his first professional contract at Wolves after turning 18 earlier this month.

The wing-back has been part of the club's academy for five years and impressed this season after stepping up to the under-23s team.

Wolves' technical director, Scott Sellars, said: “Dexter came to us from London as a 13-year-old when he was only a young boy, but in the last 15 months, he's really kicked on with his development.

“He has progressed really well and is now playing regularly with the under-23s having started with the under-18s, and his performances have been excellent.

“Dexter has always worked really hard on all aspects of his game, and it's always pleasing to have young players who have a good work ethic and really want to learn.

“It's because of his hard work that we've really seen the benefits in how he's developed with his performances for the under-23s.

“We always try to push players on and challenge them, as we believe this is the best way for them to develop. For us, age is irrelevant, it's about how you play and perform.

“Dexter has had a really good opportunity to kick on this season by being put into a challenging situation, but what he has to do now is keep working hard and keep showing that same mentality."
