Nuno hints future could still be Bright for Wolves prospect

Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo has hinted that the door could still be ajar for Bright Enobakhare to earn another chance at Molineux.

The 21-year-old scored his sixth goal for Coventry in their 2-0 win against Bradford on Good Friday to keep the Sky Blues on the fringes of the League One play-off race.

It was the second successive game that Enobakhare has found the net and he was named in the EFL’s team of the week last week. He has played 15 games for Mark Robins’s side.

Nuno also spoke well of centre back Kortney Hause, 23, who has impressed in Villa’s strong push for the play-offs, playing 10 games for Dean Smith’s in-form side.

Bright is doing very well, and Kortney,” said Nuno. “But I don’t want to miss anyone as all of them are being followed by the club. Reports come weekly.”

Enobakhare’s contract expires this summer, but Wolves have a 12-month option to extend it.

Asked if that option will be pursued, Nuno added: “All of the players, not only Bright, are being followed.

At the right moment, we will make decisions regarding their futures. For now, we will let them finish with their clubs and then, we will decide the future.

Now is not the time. I don’t think it is the right moment – it would be rushed and create tension.

We want them to be focused – that’s why they went, to play football and improve.”

Wolves have several other players loaned out to other clubs, who are due to be free to return in the summer.

Goalkeeper Harry Burgoyne is at Scottish Championship side Falkirk, centre-back Ethan Ebanks-Landell is at Rochdale, fellow defender Roderick Miranda is at Olympiakos, midfielder Connor Ronan is in Slovakia with Dunajska Streda, winger Jordan Graham is at League One Oxford, striker Rafa Mir is at Las Palmas, and fellow forward Leo Bonatini is at Nottingham Forest in the Championship.

Burgoyne, 22, has played 12 matches for Falkirk since joining them in January, Ebanks-Landell, 26, has been a regular at League One Dale, playing 20 games from the same month, while 24-year-old Graham is currently playing the longest spell of his career with 18 appearances for the fellow third-tier Us since he joined them in January.

Miranda, 28, has featured 11 times for Olympiakos, who are second in the Greek Super League but none of the six games since March 10, and Mir, 21, has been a regular for Las Palmas in the Spanish Second Division, scoring seven times in 27 appearances, with 18 starts.

Bonatini, 25, who joined Wolves permanently last summer for £5m, played the last of five games for Forest on March 9, starting just twice and failing to score.
