Pedro Neto is due back in first-team training with Wolves in January, according to Bruno Lage.
Wolves are preparing to take on Chelsea at Molineux tomorrow, and Neto is working hard to continue his own injury rehabilitation.
He posted a photo of himself on Instagram working out with a pair of dumbbells.
It should only be a matter of weeks now until Neto is fit enough to join in with Lage’s training sessions with his teammates.
It is one of the biggest cliches in the book but Neto will be like a new signing when he comes back, having not featured at all under Lage.
He will boost Wolves’ attacking threat and hopefully take some of the goalscoring burden away from Raul Jimenez.
Wolves are currently looking for alternative routes to goal with just two strikes in seven Premier League matches.
Neto cannot solve that all on his own, and it will be important that Wolves do not rush him back or put too much pressure on him soon.
But between now and the end of the season, he can hopefully chip in and his route to full fitness seems to be moving in the right direction.
