Carl Ikeme: Has been recalled by Wolves to cover for the injured Wayne Hennessey
Wolves have recalled goalkeeper Carl Ikeme from his loan spell at Doncaster to cover the loss of Wayne Hennessey through injury.
Hennessey has been ruled out due to suspected cruciate knee ligament damage that could see the Wales international spend up to nine months on the sidelines.
As a result, Wolves have activated their recall clause on Ikeme to bolster their goalkeeping options.
The 25-year-old is likely to be on the bench deputising for Dorus de Vries against Manchester City at Molineux on Sunday.
Ikeme made his Wolves debut as a teenager but much of his experience has come elsewhere in the form of loan deals with eight different clubs.
Most recently that has been at Championship bottom club Doncaster, whose relegation was confirmed following defeat to Portsmouth on Saturday - a game in which Ikeme did not feature.
And Wolves boss Terry Connor has confirmed the recall is merely a precautionary measure.
Connor told the club's official website: "We felt it prudent to recall Carl as a precaution because, whatever happens, the initial scan shows that Wayne would be doubtful for the weekend.
"But we will have to wait until he has seen the specialist before we know the full extent of his injuries."
