Boss Nuno Espirito Santo insisted it is business as usual at Wolves after the departure of sporting director Kevin Thelwell.

Wolves have now lost two key figures of their rise in less than a year after Thelwell joined New York Red Bulls as their head of sport this month.

Laurie Dalrymple, the club’s former chief executive, left in July – with him and Thelwell helping bring in Nuno in 2017.

“I’m not concerned because the club will take the decisions it has to take and replace the people with quality people also,” said Nuno.

“The future is there. More important than us as individuals is the club. Wolves is in a growing process. Everybody has helped.

“Anyone who comes has to keep the same philosophy, working for the club, helping the club.”

Meanwhile, Ruben Vinagre is Wolves’ only absentee for the visit of Leicester on Friday.

The wing-back is sidelined with a hamstring problem and is not expected back for a number of weeks.



Nuno Espirito Santo has eased fears over Adama Traore’s fitness after the winger dislocated his shoulder before the squad’s winter break in Marbella.

Wilfred Ndidi is a major doubt for Leicester’s trip to Molineux.

The midfielder suffered a setback after returning from a knee injury and is not expected to feature for the Foxes.

Wes Morgan is fit after a migraine but Matty James is missing as he gains fitness following his Achilles injury, Ryan Bennett cannot play against his parent club, and Nampalys Mendy is struggling with a knee injury.
