Five players return to Wolves from loan

Five young Wolves players have returned to Compton Park after loan spells away from the club.

Goalkeepers Joe Young and Louie Moulden are back training with the club and available for selection, while Theo Corbeanu, Christian Marques and Lewis Richards have returned from their season-long loans to have injuries assessed.

Young returns to Compton after six months at Dartford, where he kept four clean sheets in National League South, while Moulden’s loan at Solihull Moors came to an end following 16 appearances in the National League as well as an outing in the FA Cup.

Corbeanu was enjoying a fruitful loan spell in the Championship with Blackpool where the winger had found the back of the net three times in 17 second tier appearances but now returns to his parent club for assessment of an injury before a decision is made on the next stage of his development later in January.

Centre-back Marques had established himself as a solid part of the Forest Green Rovers back line in League One until suffering an injury that he is expected to recover from this month.

Fellow defender Lewis Richards made 13 appearances for League Two outfit Harrogate Town, but he has returned to Wolves where he has undergone surgery on an injury. He will spend the rest of the season recovering at Compton.

Matt Jackson, Wolves’ strategic player marketing manager, said: “As ever, we’ve had close contact with our loanee clubs throughout the first half of the season, and they have all treated our players brilliantly.

“We always have periods of assessment throughout a player’s loan away from Wolves to ensure they are at the perfect level of fitness before assessing the next stage of their development.

“Unfortunately, Lewis has had to undergo surgery which means he will spend the remainder of the season recovering from his injury, but with regards to Theo, Christian, Joe and Louie, we will now assess the best pathway to take to maintain the progression they’ve been making.”
