Sources: Wolves player signs for new club, 2.5-year contract penned

Niall Ennis has signed a contract with Plymouth Argyle as he completes a permanent transfer from Wolves, Football Insider can reveal.

The 21-year-old leaves his boyhood club having struggled to break into the Wanderers first team over the past few seasons.

A recruitment source has told Football Insider that the forward has put pen to paper on a two-and-a-half year deal with Plymouth.

Wolves accepted a bid from the League One club for Ennis yesterday after Nuno Espirito Santo gave the player the green light to leave the club. 

Ennis returned to Molineux earlier this month after his season-long loan deal at third-tier Burton Albion was terminated at the midway point.

He struggled while on loan at the Pirelli Stadium for the first half of the 2020/21 campaign and failed to to score in his 10 appearances, of which seven were starts.

A loan spell at Doncaster Rovers last season proved far more successful, his 32 appearances across all competitions yielded six goals and four assists.

Doncaster tried to re-sign Ennis in October but were beaten to his signature by Burton.

The striker made his debut for Wolves in February 2019 when he featured as a substitute in an FA Cup win over Shrewsbury Town.

A product of the Premier League club’s academy, Ennis scored 12 goals in 48 games for the club’s Under-23s.

However, he has not played for the senior side since with the likes of Raul Jimenez and Fabio Silva ahead of him in the pecking order.
