ERA OF HOMECOMING?
Cameron Borthwick-Jackson Could Be Heading Back To Manchester United.
Wolves boss Paul Lambert will decide whether to keep hold of Manchester United loanee Cameron Borthwick-Jackson in January.
The 19-year-old moved to Molineux on a season-long loan in August but he is yet to feature under Lambert, who replaced Walter Zenga in November.
“Cameron’s obviously on loan here and hasn’t really featured under me, just because I felt we needed a bit more experience,” Lambert said.
“He’s a young lad, a tidy and nice footballer and he’s got to fight his way to get into the side. But he never lets himself down in training. He trains well.
“Come January, [sporting director] Kevin Thelwell and myself will start to get the squad we think can help. There’s been no official decision on Cameron and won’t be for another few weeks.”
Wolves are sweating on the fitness of Achilles injury victim Carl Ikeme for Saturday’s visit of Fulham.
Lambert gave an injury update on the keeper and said that Joe Mason, Prince Oniangue and Lee Evans were all back in training as they close in on a return.
“Carl’s doing alright,” Lambert said. “Whether Saturday is too early I don’t know. We’ll give him up until the last minute.
“He’s still feeling it but he’s doing a lot better.
“Joe trained on Saturday for the first time and he’s doing okay. Prince has trained in the past couple of days and done alright. He’s a lad I don;t know too much about. He’s done fine and the test will come, like everybody else, when you play.
“Lee’s done a little bit, which is good. Slowly but surely we’re getting a few back out of the treatment room and that’ll give me a squad of 175! No, we’re getting them back now, but yes the squad is too big.”
