Earlier today, we carried a report from Brabants Dagblad, who explained Justin Hubner will move from FC Den Bosch to Wolverhampton Wanderers.
It was explained the 16-year-old is one of the ‘greatest talents’ to come out of the club’s academy and their plans to retain him were unsuccessful.
Brabants Dagblad said Den Bosch’s football affairs manager Bert Ruijsch had confirmed the teenager’s move to Wolves, but they report didn’t cite any comments from him.
Voetbal International are also now reporting that Hubner will join the Premier League club in the winter market.
The Dutch magazine explains Den Bosch offered a new deal to Hubner, but he rejected advances from them to accept Wolves’ proposal. He will join Wanderers’ U18 side.
VI spoke to Ruijsch and the Den Bosch chief expressed his side’s frustration after they failed to retain the young centre-back. He also admitted it’s difficult for the club to fight against Wolves.
“He went to England with his parents, and the club had a good story for him. Everything has now been adjusted,” Ruijsch explained.
“It is a shame to see such a talent leave, but on the other hand it is also a compliment for FC Den Bosch’s youth academy. We can’t compete with clubs such as Wolverhampton.”
