The English Premier League Wolverhampton Wanderers have signed a four-and-a-half-year contract with China's Wang Jiahao, also known as David Wang, reports Chinanews.com.
The 18-year-old winger will be leased to Sporting Clube de Portugal, where he will see out the rest of the season to further his development.
Born in Spain on January 12, 2000, Wang started training when he was eight year old. He was on the under-16s training list for China's men's squad in May 2015.
In 2017, he was picked by The Guardian as one of the best 60 young talents in world football. That year, he was picked to join Spanish club AE Josep Maria Gene, scoring three goals in 24 appearances.
The Wolverhampton Wanderers have two players from China on their side, the other being the midfielder He Zhenyu.
