Winger Bakary Sako returned to full training today for the first time since the saga over his on-off transfer to Nottingham Forest blew up again.
Sako and the rest of the first-team squad not involved for their countries were given Friday and the weekend off by head coach Kenny Jackett after Saturday’s game at Carlisle was postponed due to international call-ups.
The five-goal winger has used the break to make a full recovery from the sickness bug that saw him fail to train on the Thursday and Friday before the Colchester game and take part in the 3-0 win.
Jackett said: “He hadn’t trained since being ill but he’s been in and trained today.”
Rumours surfaced again last week that Forest had attempted to resurrect talks with Wolves over the Sako deal.
There was also speculation over the weekend that Fulham had re-entered the race to sign him.
Jackett denied there had been any developments, saying: “It’s been very quiet and there’s been no more contact or negotiations whatsoever.”
