Wolves’ Luke Matheson says Hamilton Academical’s ‘high ambitions’ were a big factor behind his season-long loan move to the Scottish Championship.

The teenage right-back made his debut in the weekend’s 2-1 league win over Queen of the South, Accies’ first of the season. Matheson is new head coach Stuart Taylor – a former Wolves coach – first signing since arriving in South Lanarkshire last week. Taylor says Matheson was one of his key targets.

He said: “I am delighted to bring Luke to the club. He is young player with a fantastic attitude, and I think he will be a good fit with the group of lads we have here. He was one of the first names on the list when myself and Allan (Maitland, Accies chairman) met to discuss targets and I would like to thank the board and Wolves for helping us get this.”

Matheson added: “I am over the moon to be here. I have researched the club and I know the great history this club has for developing young players.

“After speaking to the lads and coaches you can see the high ambitions of this club and I am glad to be a part of that.”
