Regan Upton, 16, has moved to Molineux from Burton

Wolves have signed Burton teenager Regan Upton for an undisclosed fee.

Midfielder Upton, 16, joined Albion in 2011 and quickly progressed to feature in the club's Under-18 side.

"Regan came to join us when we first set up the academy and he's made great strides," said Burton head of youth development Mike Whitlow.

"He was an Under-15 last year who progressed very well through the system. He's played in the Under-18s and a few clubs saw his potential.

"He's a fantastic lad and he's progressed well.

"Wolves have come in and he's stepped up to their academy which is a big step for him and a credit to himself and to what we are doing in our academy."
