Wolves will allow their young goalkeeper Jack Ruddy to leave on a temporary basis, according to a reliable journalist.
Sun correspondent Alan Nixon has revealed on Twitter that the Midlands club will sanction the exit of the 19-year-old on loan.
It is understood that there are not yet any suitors for the shot stopper, but he is available for a deadline day switch.
“Wolves will let young keeper Jack Ruddy out on loan for games,” Nixon wrote on his personal Twitter account.
Wolves are keen to send Ruddy out on loan to experience first-team action as he is unlikely to make his breakthrough at Molineux this season.
The teenager joined the Championship side in 2016 from Bury and is yet to make his firs senior appearances, but has been playing for the youth side.
He featured once at senior level for League One club Bury and a return to the lower leagues could give him game time.
Ruddy is a highly-rated talent at Wolves and has represented Scotland at Under-21 level, but could now be shipped out to help his development.
Football Insider verdict:
A loan move for Ruddy would be an extremely positive step for the youngster as he will learn far more from a season at senior level than at youth. He is unlikely to force his way into the first-team plans of Nuno Espirito Santo anytime soon as their are already a number of solid options in goal, including namesake John Ruddy and also summer addition Will Norris. Wolves appear to be making big strides towards promotion after a busy summer transfer window, but it should remain important they are still bringing through young talents. Ruddy is a highly-rated youngster that will improve from a loan spell at either League One or League Two.
