Wolves manager Bruno Lage has offered an injury update on long-term absentee Pedro Neto.

Lage said Neto saw the club doctor in Portugal earlier this week and got a positive update.

Wolves are looking at a timescale of getting Neto back by January as it stands.

As per the club website, Lage said: “Our doctor went to Portugal on Monday or Tuesday to see Pedro and the good news is that everything is ok with his injury.

“He can continue with his recovery and he can now start to work harder than he has been able to.

“From his point of view, Pedro needs five or six weeks to start training with us and then he needs to do a pre-season, maybe three or four weeks, to work and to be fit to play in this competition, because it’s very hard.

“Maybe in the middle of January we can have him in the stadium to start playing with us.”

Reaction

Even though it will still be a number of months before Neto takes to the pitch again, some Wolves fans were excited by the update.

If Neto comes back during the January window, that will give Lage more of an idea of the squad depth he needs in the transfer market.
