Wolverhampton Wanderers have snapped up Tsun Dai from Oxford United. Oxford announced Dai’s departure on their official website as he agreed to a switch to Wolves, penning a two-year deal.
Dai leaves Oxford after just one year. He previously played for Bury and Oxford paid a “small fee” for his services but he never made a first-team appearance during his time at The Kassam Stadium.
Instead, the Hong Kong international was loaned out to FC Utrecht. He played for Jong Utrecht (their reserve side), playing a handful of games in midfield for the Dutch side.
Dai has previously spent time in the Reading academy too after moving to England in 2012. His only senior game time in England has come at Bury. He scored once in 11 games for the Shakers before moving to Oxford.
Wolves have snapped the 19-year-old with a view to the future. Dai will initially join up with Rob Edwards’ U23 team and hope to progress from there. It is a big move for the teenager.
But Oxford fans are incredulous after finding out that Wolves wanted to sign the young midfielder. Here are some tweets warning Wolves about Dai, despite him never playing for the U’s.
Wait they we sold him for money? Like real money?

I was excited when we signed him, but honestly forgot about him. What has he been doing? How has he been signed if he hasn’t played for us?!

Surely this is a joke?
