Wolves have agreed to let Paul Gladon leave Molineux on a season-long loan deal as he returns to Dutch outfit Heracles Almelo.
The forward joined the Black Country outfit from Heracles in 2016, and after just one year away from the Eredivise, he has now re-signed with them on temporary terms.
Wolves announced the news in a post on their official Twitter account on Thursday afternoon, which wished “the very best luck” to the 25-year-old as he has “re-joined his former club Heracles”.

Gladon made a paltry three first-team appearances during his debut year at Molineux as he never even got to experience being on the winning side.
He was signed from Heracles in late August 2016, after making a blistering start to the season in the the Netherlands.
The centre-forward scored three goals in five games in both the league and the Europa League for Heracles, but failed to continue that form in England.
In total, the Dutchman has made 31 appearances for Heracles and scored nine goals, but he will now be hoping to improve on that figure during his loan spell away from the West Midlands.
Football Insider Verdict
Gladon has had a very miserable time with Wolves and he probably couldn’t wait to see the back of the place after failing to get into the squad for a league game since October. He looked as though he made Heracles his home and a return there to play against teams like PSV, Ajax and Feyenoord is perhaps a lot better than sticking around, struggling to make the match-day squad against the likes of Burton and Barnsley. There’s no way that this loan switch can go wrong really. If he rejuvenates his form and comes back to Wolves firing on all cylinders, then it’s a stroke of brilliance. But really, Wanderers should be looking to offload Gladon for good.
