Wolves goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey is closing on his return from a cruciate knee ligament injury.

Wayne Hennessey: Hoping for good news

The Welshman has been sidelined since he was hurt at Sunderland in April but is hoping for the all-clear this week to step up his rehabilitation.

"I see the surgeon again and hopefully that will be good news and maybe my last visit," Hennessey told Wolves' official website.

"If all is well I can maybe move into contact work and then try and push on from there.

"It feels good at the moment but I'm not getting carried away. With a cruciate injury you have to find that balance between not doing too much or not doing too little.

"I can certainly see the light at the end of the tunnel because I am doing little bits here and there with kicking and so on and saving shots again."
