Wolves van Damme has not ruled out Anderlecht return

Homesick Wolves defender Jelle van Damme has claimed he could return to Anderlecht in January after struggling to settle in England. The Belgian joined Wolves this summer from Anderlecht but has been limited to four appearances because of injury.

Wolves boss Mick McCarthy insisted Van Damme was committed to staying at Molineux but the player himself has told the Belgian press: "The coach (McCarthy) has asked me: 'If you had the choice to return to Anderlecht, would you do it?' I have answered, 'Yes'.

"In January, if we see that things are not possible between Wolverhampton and me, we will remain good friends."

Anderlecht have not had the best start to the Jupiler League season and fans were chanting Van Damme's name after the 5-1 defeat by Standard Liege on Sunday.

He added: "I've heard something about that, but that changes nothing. Do I regret that I left? Regret is a big word. At that moment, Anderlecht and I just made a choice."
