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."

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
