Wednesday’s opponent Wolves completed the loan signing of Brazilian striker Willian Jose from Spanish club Real Sociedad on Saturday.
Ahead of Wednesday’s game against Chelsea, Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo has confirmed Willian Jose won’t be available to face Chelsea.
“We’re still waiting on the work permit to be solved. Things are going and it’s just a matter of time for everything to be OK,” Nuno said.
“Having a work permit has an exception on the quarantine, as long as Willian has tested negative (for COVID-19) in Spain. We are waiting also on that result. I believe after everything is solved, he’ll join the group.”
Wolves are 14th in the league with 22 points from 19 games, five places below Chelsea.
