Bury goalkeeper Jack Ruddy has signed for Wolves, both clubs confirmed on Monday morning.

Ruddy, 18, has signed a two-year-contract at Molineux with the option of a third year and will initially join the club's U23 squad.

Ruddy is a Scotland U19 international and joined Bury from Spanish side Real Murcia in 2014, going on to make one senior appearance for the Shakers.

"I'm over the moon to be here and to have joined such a big club with really big ambitions," said Ruddy.

"I have really enjoyed my time at Bury and want to thank everyone there for what they have done for me but the interest from Wolves was always going to be very exciting.

"This is a club which has brought through goalkeepers like Matt Murray, Wayne Hennessey and Carl Ikeme, and that is a big thing to see that pathway for a young keeper coming through.
