As reported on Wolverhampton official website, "talented winger Tyler Roberts has put pen to paper on his first professional contract with Wolves having spent a decade progressing through the club’s academy.

The 17-year-old, who first joined the club at under-9 level, has been rewarded for his development and commitment to the club having come all the way through the system in gold and black to regularly wearing the captain’s armband for Steve Davis’ under-18s this season.

Having transitioned from a striker to a winger during the current campaign, Roberts has still been providing a large contribution to the side’s U18 Premier League North fixtures, with three goals and three assists under his belt, as well as offering up some outstanding strikes in the under-18s’ cup competitions.

As well as being a regular in Davis line-ups, the Walsall-born forward has also been included in several under-23 squads in the opening months of the 2021/22 season, coming off the bench on two occasions, including Wolves’ Papa John’s Trophy penalty shootout win over League One leaders Wigan Athletic".
