Hennessey poised to join Yeovil once again
Wolverhampton Wanderers keeper Wayne Hennessey should finally complete a loan switch to Yeovil Town today following injury to Manchester United's Sam Johnstone.
The Wales international was meant to hook up with the Glovers last week to cover for broken hand victim Marek Stech, but tweaked a knee problem during the warm-up before his country's friendly with the Republic of Ireland.
England under-20 international Johnstone was an 11th hour replacement for Hennessey, but damaged a finger before kick-off on his Championship debut at Burnley.
He played through the pain barrier and the extent of the injury – a torn tendon – was only discovered thanks to a scan with Premier League giants United.

Because Hennessey required just ten days to recover from his recent set-back, Yeovil boss Gary Johnson was able to renew his interest with League One Wolves.
Johnson said: "We were happy with Sam but he went back to Manchester United, they gave him a scan and it showed he'd severed tendons in the finger.
"We're jinxed with that. However, we then revisited Wayne Hennessey. We were told originally his recovery would only take ten days but at that time we couldn't wait ten days.
"We have all agreed we will get the deal back on tomorrow. We have gone back down the road with Hennessey, he's fit now and is raring to go after his little issue."
