Hong Kong footballer Tsun Dai has joined Chinese Super League team Shenzhen FC from English Premier League side Wolverhampton's youth team.

Shenzhen announced on its Weibo page on Thursday that the 20-year-old is among 14 new signings.

The 20-year-old had been training with Shenzhen for months, and his performance apparently caught the eye of the manager, former Italy international Roberto Donadoni.

Dai moved to Britain with his family at age 11, and spent time at Bury FC and Oxford United. He also had a brief loan spell at the Dutch second division club Jong FC Utrecht's youth team before joining Wolves.

Shenzhen will open the new season against Guangzhou R&F later this month.

The club finished second to last last season, but didn't have to relegate because Tianjin Tianhai withdrew from play and was dissolved.
