Wolves defender unfazed by Leicester speculation as striker returns to training

Wolves defender Cameron John insists his focus is on playing for loan club Doncaster in response to speculation on his future – as team-mate Niall Ennis returned to training after injury. Centre back John, 20, who is on a season-long loan at Rovers, has been linked with Leicester, Crystal Palace and Middlesbrough after impressing in League One. John made his first league appearance for Rovers in 11 weeks when he scored a late equaliser in Saturday’s 1-1 draw with MK Dons after recovering from an ankle injury. That was his third goal in 10 games for the Keepmoat club, and…

Willy Boly and seven youngsters join Wolves squad in Marbella

Wolves have taken seven of their Under-23s squad to Marbella with them – and injured defender Willy Boly. Andreas Sondergaard, Owen Otasowie, Oskar Rasmussen Buur, Lewis Richards, Luke Cundle, Taylor Perry and Chem Campbell are with the first-team squad at the warm weather training camp in southern Spain. Highly-rated Danish goalkeeper Sondegaard, 18, signed a two-and-a-half year deal on his birthday last January. He is the Under-23s’ regular keeper and trains daily with Rui Patricio and John Ruddy. Giant American centre back or midfielder Otasowie, also 18, is reportedly being watched by Liverpool, Arsenal and Paris Saint Germain and his…

Ashley-Seal on target again as Wolves U23s end all square with Brighton

Wolves Under-23s 1 (Ashley-Seal 3) Brighton and Hove Albion Under-23s 1 (Gwargis 55) Wolves Under-23s emulated the first team 24 hours earlier as they led Brighton before coming away all square, this time a 1-1 draw. Striker Benny Ashley-Seal continued his prolific spell by putting Mark Kennedy’s much-changed side ahead after three minutes at the Sir Jack Hayward Training Ground in Compton after the game was switched from AFC Telford United.

Nuno: ‘Work is already on the move’ to strengthen Wolves’ squad in January

Nuno Espirito Santo insists work to strengthen Wolves’ squad in January is ‘already on the move’ as he re-iterated his desire to sign players. It’s understood Wolves had earmarked signing a centre back even before the broken ankle suffered by Willy Boly. But they are expected to step up their attempts over the coming weeks, ready to push the button when the transfer window opens on January 1. Wolves have the smallest squad in the Premier League and play their 30th game of the season on Thursday night with the visit of Besiktas in their final Europa League group match.…

Wolves U23s to take on Brighton at AFC Telford

Wolves Under-23s return to league action on Monday night when they host Brighton and Hove Albion at AFC Telford United (7pm).

Tenth-placed Wolves, who are again expected to give winger Jordan Graham an outing, are seeking their first Premier League 2 victory since a 2-1 win over Manchester City in September. Revenge is in the air for Kennedy’s side as the Seagulls beat Wolves 2-0…

Nuno so proud after leading Wolves to best run in 60 years

Nuno Espirito Santo expressed his pride after leading Wolves to 11 games unbeaten in the league before flying out to Spain. Sunday’s 2-2 draw at Brighton matched Stan Cullis’s side of 1962 as the longest undefeated sequence in the top division, and they are now chasing the milestone of Cullis’s champions, which stands at 18 matches in 1959. Wolves are now in a warm weather training camp in Marbella for three days before returning for their final Europa League game at home to Besiktas on Thursday. The point took Wolves to sixth in the table, behind Manchester United on goal…

Jota would swap his two goals for two more points for Wolves

Diogo Jota admitted he would swap his two goals for two more points after his brace earned Wolves a 2-2 draw at Brighton. The Portugal international ended his nine-match drought with a brace on the south coast, scoring for the first time since his equaliser in the 1-1 draw at Crystal Palace on September 22. But the 23-year-old forward says he would have preferred a win as Wolves extended their unbeaten run to 11 league games, matching their top flight sequence from 1962 with their longest run since Stan Cullis’s champions went 18 matches undefeated in 1959. “I think, with…

Two Wolves from Bridgnorth were arrested for homophobic abuse at the Brighton game. Brighton stewards moved in to remove the two individuals from the away section, after they were reported for homophobic abuse, and the pair were arrested by Sussex Police outside the stadium. The arrests came on a day when Premier League clubs celebrated equality and diversity, by supporting Stonewall’s Rainbow Laces campaign. Sussex Police confirmed two men had been arrested following reports of homophobic gestures during the 2-2 draw and that they had been released as the investigation continues. A spokesman said: “Two football fans were arrested following…

Jota’s double – his first since a hat-trick in the 4-3 win over Leicester last January – sandwiched efforts from Neal Maupay and Davy Propper…

Wolves to depart for Marbella training camp after Brighton

Wolves will depart for a mini break to Marbella straight after Sunday’s clash at Brighton. Nuno Espirito Santo’s squad will be in southern Spain for a three-day training camp before returning for Thursday’s final Europa League group game at home to Besiktas. Wolves used the venue twice last season, in April after the 2-0 defeat at Southampton and following their FA Cup fourth round replay with Shrewsbury Town in February. After losing to Saints, Wolves returned refreshed from their break to draw at home to Brighton before beating Arsenal, Watford and Fulham. They also went to the same Spain camp…
