Wayne Hennessey’s loan spell with Yeovil has been extended until October 26.
The Welsh international keeper’s initial month-long stay had been due to expire after tomorrow’s game with Queens Park Rangers, but it has now been extended allowing him to enjoy a further sustained run at Sky Bet Championship level.
Hennessey, who had been out for more than 18 months with a twice damaged cruciate ligament, has made five appearances for the Glovers so far.
“We have agreed with Yeovil that Wayne’s loan will be extended until the 26th of October,” said Wolves Head of Football Development and Recruitment Kevin Thelwell.
“I spoke to Gary Johnson yesterday and he has been really pleased with how Wayne has been performing and wanted to extend the loan period.
“That’s good news for all of us and particularly Wayne because he is back playing and getting into great shape at a good level.
“He has had no issues at all from his previous injury and is getting some games in and looking in good form.”
Carl Ikeme has also been in good form in Wolves goal with Aaron McCarey pushing him for the spot and also impressing in his Johnstone’s Paint Trophy start, hence the decision to allow Hennessey out to make a senior comeback.
