Chelmsford-Born Zimbabwean Tawanda Chirewa Joins Wolves From Ipswich


Wolverhampton Wanderers announced the signing of Ipswich Town prospect Tawanda Chirewa who was out of contract at Portman Road. Tawanda is an academy product of Ipswich. 

Zimbabwean player signs for Wolves

He made his senior debut for the club in an EFL Trophy contest with Colchester United in November 2019, which made him the club's youngest ever player at 16 years and 31 days old.

The 19 year old talented midfielder will be registered with the U21 PL2 team, though there is belief he could become a first team candidate in the near future.

Harry Hooman, Wolves head of academy recruitment Harry Hooman, said:

“Tawanda is someone we have liked and monitored for a long time, dating back to when he was an under-16. Although nothing happened at the time, we continued to monitor his development closely over the last few seasons.

“He is an athletic, talented player with the ability to score and create goals. He wants to get on the ball and is not afraid to take responsibility and take risks to make things happen.

“We feel he has the attributes and potential to do well for us both in the short and long-term. This is a fresh challenge for him and we are excited to see him kick on again with us.”

According to TWTD, in 2022 West Ham United were competing with Arsenal to sign the exciting teenager. 

Ipswich opted to extend his deal at Portman Road for another year and would have wanted him to make that stay even longer.
