Shabani aiming to return to Wolves training next month

Wolves forgotten man Meritan Shabani is targeting a return to training in April as he looks to end his injury nightmare, as per the Express and Star.

They report that he is closing in on the next step of his route back to fitness after a frustrating period of his career.

He ruptured his anterior cruciate ligament on his senior debut against Reading in the Carabao Cup in September 2019.

He did get back to fitness after that lay-off before joining Dutch outfit VVV-Venlo on loan at the end of January 2021.

He made five appearances for Venlo before suffering an injury which was not disclosed at the time.

But the report says it was a recurrence of his ACL injury, which has kept him out of action until now.

Shabani is one of only two Wolves players out injured now, with Nelson Semedo also facing a period of one or two months on the sidelines.

The midfielder has really not been able to get his Molineux career off the ground and Bruno Lage will want to see what he is about.

Another loan spell could beckon next season once he gets his fitness back, but the first priority is getting into training again and staying fit.
