Wolverhampton Wanderers manager Dean Saunders reveals that winger Stephen Hunt could return from injury against Leicester City next week.

Wolverhampton Wanderers manager Dean Saunders has revealed that midfielder Stephen Hunt is closing in on a return to first-team action.

The 31-year-old has not played a single minute of Championship football this season due to hip surgery, but after coming through a practice match on Tuesday, Hunt could earn a place on the substitutes' bench for the club's match with Leicester City next Thursday.

Saunders told the Birmingham Mail: "He played 50 minutes in a practice match on Tuesday and did well.

"If he can get through the next week's training – because that will be the test for him – he will be in line for a comeback.

"He has gone from doing nothing to working hard so, if there's no reaction, we will try and get a game for next Monday. We have got a game next Thursday and he might be able to get a game in that."

Hunt has made 44 appearances for Wolves since joining the club in 2010.
