Molineux had two surprise arrivals this morning. Or should that be returns as Leon Clarke and Keith Lowe both rejoined the pack, but not on the best of circumstances.
Both had been allowed to go out on loan to Queens Park Rangers where it was hoped a change of scenery, and a run out for another side would do both good.
But following Rangers manager Ian Holloway being placed on 'gardening leave' indefinately, assistant manager Gary Waddock has taken over first team affairs, and sees the pair as surpluss to requirements.
'I spoke to Gary Waddock on Friday and he told me that he wants to go with the players who are already there that he knows.' Glenn Hoddle told the clubs official site, adding
'The lads obviously aren't going to play down there and so it was best for them to come back and train with us.'
The decision is particularly annoying because neither can now go out to another club. Or play for Wolverhampton Wanderers until the end of the month. At any level. As Glenn explains.
'The rules mean, though, that they can't play for us at either first team or reserve level for another couple of weeks, which is difficult for them.'
'We'll make a call and see if there's any way around that, so they can at least have a run out in the reserves, but I don't know if it will make any difference.'
Both players are said to be taking the situation in their stride, and are happy to be home. But the lost opportunity to taste football with another club won't help the further development of either player.
Leon Clarke in particular is hardly likely to benefit from being thrust back into the glare of the Molineux limelight.
At least he'll have a fortnight to steel himself for the distinct possibility that he will have to face the Molineux crowd once again at some point this season.
