Some Wolves fans have been reacting with delight, after manager Nuno Espirito Santo suggested Raul Jimenez could make a return to action before the 2020/21 season is out.

The Mexican superstar is currently recuperating after his sickening clash of heads with David Luiz at Arsenal back in November.

The incident left the 29-year-old with a fractured skull that required him to undergo surgery in a London hospital that same evening.

Thankfully, Jimenez is OK and by all accounts, his recovery has been going very well.

There is still no word on when exactly he’ll be back, but yesterday Nuno gave an extremely positive update on the striker.

When asked about the possibility of Jimenez playing again this season, he said (Wolves official): “We are truly positive that this can happen. It’s very good news the way he keeps improving day by day.

“Not only me but all the medical staff are surprised because he’s improving on all the concussion tests that we did previously two seasons ago. He’s doing really, really well.
