Wolves' plans for the weekend's game with Sheffield United have been boosted by the early return of four players from international duty.

Wales duo Freddy Eastwood and Wayne Hennessey, along with Republic of Ireland pair Kevin Foley and Andy Keogh, were flown back on owner Steve Morgan's private jet.

Eastwood and Hennessey were picked up in Slovakia before the jet stopped off in Czech Republic for Foley and Keogh.

Chief executive Jez Moxey feels the decision will be beneficial to manager Mick McCarthy as he prepares for Saturday's Championship encounter with The Blades.

Not uncommon

"The manager posed the question as to whether we could get the players back from Bratislava and Prague early because last time they were on international duty they were not back in training until Friday, leaving just one day to prepare for the Blackpool game," Moxey told the club's official website.

"Bringing them back last night meant they could sleep in their own beds and be available for training today.

"They can now get two sessions in before a very important game against Sheffield United on Saturday.

"I spoke to Steve Morgan and he was in agreement. Many clubs do this - it's not uncommon."
