Four new players have joined Blues' Development Squad.

The players are Francis Amartey, Cameron McGilp, Danny Lupano and Michael Luyambula.

Striker Amartey and centre-half Lupano have signed professional deals following an extended trial at the Club, which has seen them play a number of Under-23s matches.

Amartey, who can play either through the centre or on the flank, was born in London and previously played for non-league Beaconsfield Town and Flackwell Heath, where he scored 11 times last season.

The 19-year-old was registered with the FAB Academy.

Centre-back Lupano, 17, who can also play in other positions across the back and midfield, was previously with National League side Solihull Moors' Academy.

McGilp and Luyambula have come from slightly further afield.

Glasgow-born McGilp, 20, was a midfielder with Australian side Melbourne Victory who are coached by former Wolves defender Kevin Muscat.

McGilp left the A League champions in May.

Goalkeeper Luyambula was a product of German side Borussia Dortmund and was a regular for their Under-19s team.

Under the restrictions the Club have been placed under by the EFL, none of quartet are available to play First Team football. But they fall outside the allocated number of players the Club is allowed to recruit.
