Wolverhampton Wanderers manager Nuno Espirito Santo has highlighted some progress in Phil Ofosu-Ayeh’s injury recovery.

The Ghana international is yet to kick a ball for the Championship side since completing a three-year move from German second tier outfit Eintracht Braunschweig last June.

His lack of action has been due to an ankle injury picked up in preseason, for which he underwent a surgery last September.

“He [Ofosu-Ayeh] is not working with us yet,” Santo told Express & Star.

“He’s still getting better and solving all the problems that he has – he’s not 100 per cent with the group.

“Of course [he is some way off]. We cannot forget that Phil, since the beginning of the season, has been injured, so it will take time to integrate the dynamic of training sessions.”

In a similar injury-plagued campaign at Braunschweig last season, Ofosu-Ayeh made 16 league appearances involving 14 starts.

Born in Moers, Germany, to a German mother and a Ghanaian father, the former VfR Aalen man is a full Ghana international, having featured in a friendly against Canada in 2015.
