Professional contract and loan deal for Llanez
Youth-team product Ulysses Llanez joins Heerenveen after signing through to 2024.
The Wolves have tied down another talented youngster on a long-term deal, with youth-team product Ulysses Llanez signing his first professional contract that will keep him at the club until 2024. To make sure that he gets adequate playing time, the Green-and-Whites are loaning the US international straight out to Dutch top-flight club SC Heerenveen for a year.
Llanez moved from the USA to the VfL football academy in the summer of 2019. He scored 11 goals in 16 matches in his first season with the Wolves’ Under-19s and was often invited to train with the first team by head coach Oliver Glasner. The 19-year-old also made his international debut on 1 February 2020 when USA took on Costa Rica, scoring the only goal of the game from the penalty spot.
