Leander Dendoncker got to the quarter-finals of Euro 2020 with Belgium this summer.
He started their opening game of the tournament against Russia, which ended in a 3-0 win.
Dendoncker also started the 2-1 comeback victory over Denmark in the second group game.
But he only played a minute of the three games after that as Belgium were beaten by eventual winners Italy in the last eight.
His summer exploits have earned him an extended break before he links up with Wolves in pre-season.
Belgium knocked out Portugal in the last 16, so Dendoncker has earned a slightly later return date than his Portuguese club teammates.
But Dendoncker isn’t back yet and the Express and Star have reported when he’s due back.
They say he’s due back tomorrow, on the day Wolves play their second pre-season fixture.
It’s highly unlikely he’ll play in that clash against Real Betis in Spain. He could feature against Las Palmas on Monday.
There’s also the question of where Dendoncker fits into Bruno Lage’s 4-4-2 system.
He can play at the back or in midfield but largely did both in a trio under Nuno Espirito Santo. It’ll be interesting to see what Lage has planned.
