Young winger leaves Wolves for Motherwell

Wolves youngster Sherwin Seedorf has moved to Scottish Premier League side Motherwell for an undisclosed fee.

The 21-year-old Suriname-born winger has signed a two-year deal at Fir Park and has been allocated the number 11 shirt. Seedorf joined Wolves in February 2017 from Nike Academy after seven years with Feyenoord’s youth ranks and featured in gold and black for the Under-23s in Premier League 2 Division 2, but never made a first-team appearance.

Last season, Seedorf, who is distantly related to AC Milan and Dutch legend Clarence Seedorf, spent time on loan at Bradford City and FC Jumilla, making 19 appearances between the two clubs.

But his next move is north of the border with Motherwell, who finished eighth in the Scottish top flight last term.

Motherwell boss Stephen Robinson said: “Sherwin has a lot of raw attributes that make for an exciting prospect. He’s very quick, he’s direct and likes to take players on in the final third.

He has also shown a willingness and a maturity to get out on loan, play games and develop himself. He is at a good place to learn more, develop and make an impact on the first team.”

Seedorf could make his debut on Saturday in Dumfries, when Motherwell start their season away to Queen of the South at Palmerston Park in the Betfred Cup (Scottish League Cup) group stages. He joins fellow new boy Devante Cole, the 24-year-old son of former Manchester United prolific striker Andrew, who is on a six-month loan from Paul Cook’s Wigan.
