In a recent interview with BBC West Midlands, Wolverhampton Wanderers defender Richard Stearman has been speaking about the potential of Wolves youngster Jordan Graham. 

Wide midfielder Graham, who is just 21-years-old, has struggled with injuries of late, spending 15 months out with a cruciate knee ligament injury.

However, the youngster managed 30 minutes in Wolves' latest 1-0 defeat to Huddersfield Town, and defender Stearman, who is currently on loan from Fulham, has been given a glowing review of the winger:

"I thought he really livened the game up and got some bums off seats when he came on," Stearman told the BBC. "If he can stay fit then he'll be a force to be reckoned with next season."

Wolves defender Stearman is set to return to Fulham at the end of the season after his loan expires, but plenty of Wolverhampton Wanderers fans will be hoping the club can make a return to the club permanent over the summer.

But it will be the progress of young Graham that will have Wolves fans the most excited. This season has been something of a disappointment for the faithful supporters at Molineux, and a young player with the raw talent that Graham has is certainly worth getting excited about.

A mix of emerging youth and new signings over the summer could spell for a could season for Wolves next year.
