Matt Doherty is travelling to Armenia for Wolves' Europa League qualifier against FC Pyunik after recovering from injury, boss Nuno Espirito Santo has confirmed.

The Irishman started training again this week after a knee injury hampered his pre-season preparations.

"Matt is going to travel with us. He had a knock, but he didn't lose his shape," said Nuno.

"He was working. He started training this week and he's doing very, very well."

Doherty will be joined by new signings Jesus Vallejo and Patrick Cutrone – signed from Real Madrid and AC Milan respectively – on the flight for the third qualifying round first leg.

“Yes, they're going to travel with us. It's not a large squad, it's a small squad, but it's a starting XI that's very willing to challenge themselves," said Nuno.

"So Patrick Cutrone and Jesus Vallejo are going to travel with us."

Pedro Neto and Bruno Jordao – signed last week – will not be going, though.

"No. They came late, so they have the normal process of integration into the team," added Nuno.


"They're not available for this trip."

Morgan Gibbs-White is rated as 50/50 after picking up a knock at Crusaders.

Raul Jimenez, who also picked up a knock in that game, is fine and making the trip.
