​Wolves loan U23 duo to Switzerland and Croatia

Premier League side Wolves have loaned under-23s pair Ed Francis and Hong Wan to teams in Europe.

The club are hoping the duo can gain first team experience for the rest of the season.

Franics is going to Grasshoppers in Switzerland.

Meanwhile, Hong will go to NK Varazdin in Croatia.

Wolves' policy of sending out many of their most promising youngsters on loan means they struggle at the under-23 level.

Their team is currently bottom of the Premier League 2 Division One table, and they have lost their last five games.

James Collins' team were defeated 2-1 by Liverpool under-23s on Monday.
