Matt Hobbs explains why Ki-Jana Hoever's loan to PSV has been terminated

Matt Hobbs has revealed that Wolves have decided to pull Ki-Jana Hoever out of PSV Eindhoven based on footballing reasons.

The full-back is now set to embark on a new adventure following a disappointing few months back in his homeland.

Hoever was only able to make eight appearances for the club.

Officials had hoped he would be able to be a regular in their starting XI, having struggled for minutes in his first two seasons with Wolves.

Hoever has played second fiddle to Nelson Semedo at Molineux, with the pair both signing in the summer of 2020.

Many felt Hoever – who cost Wolves around £13.5 million in total – playing back in his homeland was something that would be really good for him.

But he’s barely featured for the Dutch giants, and now Wolves are searching for a new club.

Some have been wondering why Hoever’s time at PSV has ended early.

Well, Wolves sporting director Matt Hobbs has now shed some light on the situation.

He said (Wolves official): “PSV being interested in Fabio has given us the opportunity to pull Ki out.

“We’ve been able to bring Ki back while they contribute to his wages for the rest of the season and we can pick a new club for him for the second part of the season, based purely on a football reason.

“We can pick the best club who are going to give him good minutes and the right style of football, without any other thoughts needing to come into play.”

Wolves full-back Ki-Jana Hoever must impress during next loan stint

One gets the feeling this could be a final chance for Hoever to show he can make it at Wolves.

He’s had two underwhelming seasons at Molineux.

And now this loan spell with PSV has been brought to an end early.

Julen Lopetegui hasn’t wanted to bring him back into the fold. So it’s clear he needs a really big next five months or so.
