Nigel Lonwijk shares social media message after returning to Wolves from 2023/24 loan

One little seen Wolves player has revealed his plans for next season after returning from a loan spell.

Wolves are training in Marbella as part of their pre-season preparations, with Gary O’Neil looking to assess his players ahead of next season.

The Englishman was given days to prepare for the 2023/24 season after arriving at Molineux soon before the season opener, with the summer providing an opportunity for the manager to engage with his players.

In addition to those who thrived at Wolves last season, O’Neil will have to sift through the players who have returned from loan periods, with one name standing out.

Nigel Lonwijk delivers a social media statement after returning to Wolves following his 2023/24 loan.

2020 signing yet to make Wolves debut sends clear message to Gary O'Neil on social  media

The Dutchman spent the 2023/24 season with Grasshoppers before returning to Wolves and signing for League One club Wycombe Wanderers. After returning to his parent club, the center-back posted a statement on X to commemorate his return to training.

His caption said, “Hard work to start the season! Feeling terrific and ready to go!” This could indicate his willingness to continue at Wolves the following season.

Lonwijk will be eager to impress Gary O’Neil.
Lonwijk, a centre-back with senior experience gained through loan periods, will now be eager to make his mark at Molineux.

The 21-year-old is currently in Marbella with the first team, where he will have the opportunity to impress the management at what might be a critical period for both the player and the manager.

After selling Max Kilman to West Ham, O’Neil faces a defensive quandary, as he currently has few choices at centre back.

Lonwijk should see an opportunity to make his impact in preseason, as there are likely gaps to fill if the manager sees promise.

Despite being with Wolves for over four years, the defender has yet to make his senior debut, with next season vital for the youngster, whose contract expires in 2025.

The centre-back has been selected on the bench three times in the Premier League and hopes to improve his chances in the coming season.
