Wolverhampton Wanderers’ record signing Fabio Silva may be given a run out for the club’s U23 side this week in order to gain valuable match minutes.

Wolves splashed £35m on the 18-year-old striker in the summer but the youngster has only made one start for the club since his arrival from Porto, coming in a League Cup game with Stoke.

The Portugal U19 international was given his first taste of Premier League action off the bench against Manchester City in September and was also introduced late on in Wolves’ victory over Crystal Palace at the weekend.

Manager Nuno Espirito Santo does admit the striker needs more game time, and that may come for the Wolves U23’s this week.

James Collins’ development squad are in action on Monday against Fulham, with it likely Fabio Silva will start in order to get some minutes under his belt.
