Razak Boukari has returned to Wolves after completing a medical with Sochaux over a possible season-long loan, as negotiations continue between the two clubs.
The winger is back at Compton and will continue to build up his fitness by training with the Under-21s and Under-18s this week but it is too early for possible first team consideration given he has been sidelined for almost a year.
“Razak passed the medical which was fine,” says Head Coach Kenny Jackett.
“He didn’t agree terms but it is still under negotiation and the talks are ongoing.
“In terms of him, he is fit now and ready to train and he will need a constructive week.
“The first team are doing fitness work today and he needs football so will train with the Under-18s today and then the Under-21s.
“I don’t think he will be in the group this week that prepares for Crawley.
“He is a Wolves player and he builds up his fitness after missing pre-season.”
David Edwards meanwhile is unlikely to be back to fitness in time for Friday’s visit of Crawley (7.45pm) with treatment continuing on the foot injury which forced him off against Preston.
Jackett said: “He is still showing signs of feeling the foot injury that he sustained at Preston. “We can’t at the moment find any bone damage, and X-rays have cleared him but his foot is still painful.
“He is rehabilitating but he is not training. The assessment is that the bone is okay. There is no break but it is still painful. It’s a pity because he can play and he’s a very good character.
“He needs a break somewhere along the line that he can get a run to stay in the team. Over the last couple of seasons it’s only injuries that have stopped him - not his quality and not his attitude.
“He needs to get an injury free run to do what we all know Dave Edwards can do, which is play well.”
