Hennessey has not featured at first-team level for 14 months after twice injuring cruciate knee ligaments but is back in training as he bids to get game time.

The 26-year-old Wales keeper is buzzing to be back and cannot wait to try and help fire Kenny Jackett's side back up to the Championship.

He told the Birmingham Mail: "It's been a while but now I am just feeling excited and focusing on playing again.

"I've missed a hell of a lot of football. The last game I played was in the Premier League. I'd like to get back in and show that Hennessey is back! I'm happy and buzzing."

Low

Regarding his injury hell, he added: "I was low when I got the injury the second time. It's over seven months now and I have got the leg stronger again. It has had enough time.

"I haven't had a holiday - I've been here at the training ground grafting to make sure I got myself right. I'd like to think I've done well myself to get back to where I am now.

"I think I'm a changed person now. You don't want to be injured, especially long term, but in some aspects maybe it helped me and I look at things differently now. I've learned a lot more about my body and what it needs and how I can keep myself in top condition.

"But I've also missed a lot of football, not just for Wolves but Wales as well. Hopefully now I can get back in and start doing what I love doing again which is playing football.

"I've missed it all so much, even going away with the lads for away games or on pre-season.

"I don't feel the knee now. Everything I've been doing in the last bits of my rehabilitation when I've been diving around again has been pain free. With a couple of weeks good training now, hopefully I will get some game time."

ood lord that's got me unnecessarily excited. Damn you Storey. Cut to Liverpool being crushed under the wheels of Sparky's Stoke Machine and Firmino brought off the bench to no effect. It's the hope that kills you.

think he'll do quite well. My only reservation would be Kagawa, who had similar stats to Firmino in the bundesliga before he came, but time will tell.
