Nelson Semedo pictured with his Wolves teammates in training

Nelson Semedo has seemingly rejoined the rest of his Wolves teammates in training.

The wing-back didn’t get any minutes out in Alicante as he stepped up his recovery from a hamstring injury.

Semedo sustained the injury against Brighton back in April, causing him to miss Wolves’ final four games.

It was his second hamstring injury in quick succession, which was a real frustration for the 28-year-old as he had been enjoying a really solid season.

Semedo required surgery, and he has been hard at work in his rehabilitation over the past few months.

He was only able to do individual sessions out in Alicante, but it would appear Semedo is now back training with the rest of the group which is a very promising sign.

The club have released some fresh pictures and the former Barcelona man can clearly be seen.

Previously, it has been felt that Semedo was touch and go for the first game of the season against Leeds United.

Potentially, this could mean he will be available for selection in just over a week’s time.

Whether he starts though is another thing.

Obviously he will be lacking sharpness, and Jonny Castro Otto is perhaps the favourite to play on the right side at the moment.

But Semedo could well have some involvement against Sporting CP and SC Farense on Saturday.

Hwang Hee-chan and Adama Traore are also in the batch of pictures, but they can only be seen individually.

Very promising signs over Nelson Semedo with 2022/23 starting next weekend

It is really good to see Semedo back with the rest of group.

It surely means that things are going well with his recovery.

Indeed, yesterday Wolves did put out a big update on a number of players and said that Semedo had been doing ‘very well’.

Hopefully he will be able to get some minutes into his legs over the weekend.

Semedo has become a really important player for Wanderers, having taken that first term to get used to the Premier League.

He was superb at times in 2021/22, and Lage will be hoping he can return with a bang. If that won’t be against Leeds, then it surely won’t be too much further away.
