Wolves signing Danny Loader could be hugely detrimental for their academy

According to Football Insider, Wolves are interested in Reading starlet Danny Loader, who has been impressing in the Championship this season. However, by signing him, it could be incredibly detrimental for certain members of the club’s academy.

What’s the word?

Loader has quickly become one of the most promising young English players in the country, starring for the Royals this season after initially finding himself in superb form in Premier League 2.

Before being promoted to the first team, he scored ten goals for their U23 side. He would then go on to feature 21 times in the Championship.

Despite only scoring once, the threat he’s provided in attacking areas of the pitch has caught the eye of Wolves, who are now plotting a move for the 19-year-old, per Football Insider. The report also claims that a host of Premier League club have monitored the player.

Detrimental for the academy

By signing Loader, Wolves could be sending out a dangerous message to some of their brightest prospects already at the club.

The Reading man has a huge amount of potential but it would be incredibly detrimental for the likes of Niall Ennis and Benny Ashley-Seal.

Both players are also forwards who possess similar attacking traits to Loader.

However, if the latter was to arrive then any chance of Ennis and Ashley-Seal gaining first team minutes would take a severe hit.

It’s a struggle to get into the Wolves side as it is, especially with Nuno Santo preferring a lack of rotation.

The aforementioned Wolves academy players scored a combined 20 goals between them as Rob Edwards’ U23 side went onto win Premier League 2 Division 2. With that in mind, they certainly deserve a chance to show what they’re capable of at senior level.

Ennis has had major setbacks with injury in the past whilst Ashley-Seal has spent the second half of the campaign on loan in Portugal with Familicao.

If Loader was to sign, both players would likely be pushed further down the pecking order and may have them doubting their futures at Molineux.
