Wolves cub Ennis a loan target for Plymouth

Wolves striker Niall Ennis could become the latest youngster to be loaned out to gain experience with Plymouth Argyle chasing his signature.

The 20-year-old, who is currently one of the few forwards on Wolves’ trip to China after the departures of Helder Costa and Ivan Cavaleiro, has attracted the interest of the League Two club, according to Football Insider. Ennis made his Wolves debut in the FA Cup fourth round replay win against Shrewsbury Town last season and was top scorer for the Under-23s who won Premier League 2 Division 2.

Plymouth boss Ryan Lowe is looking to boost his attacking options this summer after losing last season’s 19-goal top scorer Freddie Ladapo to Rotherham United for £500,000, while the Pilgrims will be looking for an immediate return to League One after being relegated on goal difference last term.

Wolves loans manager Seyi Olofinjana told recently that more youngsters could leave on loan, and, if he goes, Ennis will join fellow Under-23s Ryan Giles (Shrewsbury Town), Connor Ronan (Dunajská Streda) and Christian Herc (Viktoria Plzeň) who are currently plying their trade in temporary stays away from Molineux.

A number of Football League clubs have enquired about taking Ennis on loan for next season, but the Devon outfit are said to be in pole position to land the England Under-19 international.

Wolverhampton-born Ennis is highly regarded at Molineux and has been capped by England at Under-17, Under-18s and Under-19s levels. A loan stint at Shrewsbury in 2017 was cut short by serious injury.
