Youth career

Bright began playing football in Nigeria, sometimes missing school lessons to get a game. He was 15 when he arrived in England, where he played first for his college, and then in Sunday League football. He was scouted by a few different clubs and had several trials before choosing Wolves.

He started the 2014-15 season well, scoring regularly for the Under-18 side. Towards the end of the season he made two appearances for the Under-21s, the first from the subs bench against Derby. He was taken on the 2015-16 first team pre-season fitness camp at Clairefontaine, and scored the late winner in the first friendly there, against Chambly. He also scored against Northampton in another pre-season first-team friendly. He then made his professional debut on 25 August in a 2-1 league cup second round victory over Barnet, scoring the first goal three minutes into the game. Further appearances were few and far between though, as Wolves went to a system with only one striker and signed Grant Holt on loan from Wigan. Under-21 appearances were infrequent too. Then Bright was given a few days off to deal with a personal matter, only to disappear altogether for almost a fortnight, before making contact and returning to training.

Career honours

He was a member of the 2015 Bitzer Cup winning Wolves squad, although he was red-carded in the first game and banned from the rest of the tournament.


Bright signed a professional contract towards the end of the first year of his scholarship, just after his 17th birthday. This ties him to Wolves until 2017, at which point the club has an option on a further year.
