Wolves winger Jordan Graham is getting closer to a return to action after making his training comeback yesterday.

An emotional Graham proclaimed his return to the pitches as one of the happiest days of his life, commenting via Twitter.

Graham has been out of action since picking up a serious knee injury in January 2016.

Graham was not taking his training return as an excuse to ease off his recuperation, adding later that he was putting in the extra work.

Jordan Graham's return sets up a tantalising link up with fellow winger Helder Costa, with the pair potentially two of the most dynamic players in the division.

Manager Paul Lambert will of course have to manage him carefully and it could be another month before he is considered for first team action, but he appears to now be making good progress.

If he can end the season back in a Wolves shirt and show a few glimpses of magic then Graham could re-establish himself as a key player ahead of a potential promotion charge next campaign.
