The midfielder has been sidelined for six months after requiring three hernia operations but is back in full training and close to a first-team return, and the Wolves manager is hoping the versatile player is back in contention as soon as possible, as the Molineux club look to climb up towards the play-off spots.

Solbakken told the club's official website: "He's the type of midfielder we sometimes lack. But first of all, we need him fit.

"He can certainly play different roles. I've seen him play as an orthodox central midfielder and I've seen him play coming in off the left and coming in off the right with his left foot when he played for Portsmouth.

"Jamie's a type of player who has a left foot which can do a bit extra.

"He can also play between the lines a bit more and add something to the other midfielders."

lassic management. Build them up and then knock them back. Raise expectations and then dampen them. Create a dynamic where by you demand the most from your team, but where the team are given room to manoeuvre unexpected or unwanted results. Classy work by Van Gaal, he really reminds me a lot of me. A smart cookie, make no doubt.
