£1m-rated Wolves target Jamie Hamilton can be a long-term partner for Conor Coady and Willy Boly

Hamilton expect £800k bids for Jamie Hamilton.

Wolverhampton Wanderers and Burnley are two clubs interested in signing Jamie Hamilton from Hamilton Academical, according to The Daily Mail.

Looking ahead to the future, the teenage defender has been identified as a top target. And bids of £800k should be enough to prise him away from Hamilton.

Although Hamilton is yet to make his debut for Accies, he has been named on the first-team bench in recent weeks.

The 17-year-old captains Scotland at youth level and is renowned as a ball-playing centre-back, which makes him perfect for Wolves.

Hamilton is not likely to be first-team ready yet but within the next two years, he could make his way into this Wolves side.


Conor Coady and Willy Boly are the two undisputed first-choice central defenders at Molineux and both have been in superb form this season.

But the third piece of the jigsaw is not quite as secure. Ryan Bennett has been the most-used player in that role but his form has been up and down.

Meanwhile, Romain Saiss can fill in at centre-half but he is arguably better suited to a central midfield role.

Hamilton’s arrival would be a bargain if he fulfils his potential and makes his first-team breakthrough soon. This could be Wolves’ long-term answer at the back.
