Wolves have agreed a partnership with Spanish Segunda Division B side FC Jumilla. As part of the deal, Wolves will be able to loan players to FC Jumilla.

Wolves and FC Jumilla Agree Partnership

What Does This Mean For Both Clubs?

This partnership will see the development of young Wolves players enhanced by sending them out on loan. It will be beneficial for the youngsters as they will gain experience playing senior football in a different environment as well as playing in a competitive league.

In return, FC Jumilla will benefit from being able to send their coaches and management staff to Wolves, where they will learn from the coaches and backroom staff’s expertise, as well as getting hungry young players eager to impress and show what they’re capable of.

Who Are FC Jumilla?

Founded in 1975 as Jumilla CF, the club was reformed in 2011 as FC Jumilla after debts of around £340,000 caused the club to dissolve. FC Jumilla was taken over by famous Chinese commentators Li Xiang and Tang Hui in June 2016.

Based in the south-east region of Murcia, FC Jumilla play their football in the Spanish third tier, Segunda Division B. They finished 13th last season and are currently sitting in fourth place after two games in this campaign. They currently play their home games at the Estadio Municipal de la Hoya, which has a maximum capacity of 3,000.

Who’s Joined FC Jumilla?

Wolves have loaned nine players to FC Jumilla to improve their development. Some players have not bee involved in senior football before, so this is a wonderful opportunity to improve their game. They have also sent three players who have been involved in senior football, just not with Wolves.

Those players sent over with no senior experience are Jack Ruddy, Ryan Leak, Aaron Simpson, Boubacar Hanne, Will Randall and Donovan Wilson. Wolves have also sent over some promising players inn the form of Sylvain Deslandes; the French left-back has represented them at youth level up to the U20’s. Also joining is highly rated Swiss U20’s player Ming-yang Yang, who’s played for his previous side, Lausanne-Sport, 81 times. Finally, Ben Stevenson has been sent, who played 48 games for Coventry before joining Wolves in January for an undisclosed fee.
