Wolves star closing in on full fitness

Kightly has been struggling with ankle and knee problems.

McCarthy believes the 24-year-old will be ‘like having a new player’ when he returns.

“Kightly is doing very well. He’ll start stepping into training with the lads this week,” said McCarthy.

“He will do a couple of sessions with the football for 30 minutes.

“He will be like a new player for us, because we hardly used him at all last year.”
