​Wolves boss Nuno reveals Ruben Vinagre close to return

Wolves wing back Ruben Vinagre could be ready for a return to the first team.

Their boss Nuno Espirito Santo spoke about Vinagre and his recovery from a hamstring problem.

He has been out since they played Manchester United last month.

And Nuno is very optimistic about getting Vinagre back into the squad.

The 20-year-old has only managed three Premier League starts this season, along with seven substitute appearances.

Nuno told reporters: "Everybody is OK.

"The exception is Ruben Vinagre. He is out, but he is really close to returning and joining the group again."
