CareerEdit

Ashley-Seal was on the books at Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur before joining Norwich's academy in 2015. In October 2015, he was named by The Guardian as one of the top twenty prospects of his age group to look out for.[2] Despite this, he did not sign a professional contract with the club and, despite reported interest from Leicester City,[3] instead had trials with Chelsea and Stoke.[4]

In October 2017 he signed with Wolverhampton Wanderers on a two-an-a-half-year deal.[5] He made his professional debut for the club on 28 August 2018 in a 2–0 League Cup victory at Sheffield Wednesday, coming on as a substitute in the 80th minute for Léo Bonatini.[6]

On 23 January 2019, Ashley-Seal signed a new three-and-a-half-year contract with Wolves and joined LigaPro side Famalicão until the end of the 2018/19 season.[7]
