Youth career

Donovan Wilson joined the Bristol Rovers youth set-up at the age of eight, having been spotted playing for Bradley Stoke United. He was a regular in the Rovers U18 team during the 2013-14 season, and gained his first professional contract in May 2014. On the final day of the last loan transfer window of that year he joined Wolves. He didn't get to play any senior football at Rovers, although he was an unused substitute on three occasions. The fee agreed between the two clubs is reported to be around £50,000 initially, but of course the value for both sides will be in the later add-ons. In his first season at Wolves, Wilson scored three goals in ten U21 appearances.

Prior to the 2015-16 season, the Wolves first team squad set off for a few days in Clairefontaine, the French FA's training camp. Some U21 players were taken, including Bright Enobakhare, but Wilson was not. However, he flew out two days later, possibly as a result of an injury to Jed Wallace, and got the last twenty minutes or so in the two games, doing well in both and scoring the late winner against FC Paris in the second one.
