  • Wolves’ Willy Boly will have more tests after reporting an elevated heart rate 
  • The defender was also suffering extreme fatigue after contracting Covid-19
  • Nuno Espirto Santo said clubs will do more reserach into the effects on players
  • Several players have reported feeling worse some time after leaving isolation 

Willy Boly will have further tests this week after the Wolves defender reported an elevated heart rate that ruled him out if the derby draw with West Bromwich Albion.

Boly was also said to be suffering from extreme fatigue that left him unable to train properly last week, and Wolves hope more checks this week will shed further light on the problem.

Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo revealed that some of his players who have contracted Covid-19 – there have been at least 10 over the course of the season – have felt effects some time after leaving isolation.

Boly missed the games against West Ham and Fulham in April after giving a positive test when he returned from international duty with Ivory Coast, but struggled particularly in the 4-0 home defeat by Burnley on April 25, despite helping Wolves to a clean sheet against Sheffield United eight days earlier.

‘It’s something the Premier League and medical departments of the clubs will look at,’ said Nuno, prior to the West Brom game.

‘Players may show no symptoms but I think they have been affected a few weeks after the infection.

‘We believe that after a player has been infected, the 10 days afterwards are not an issue. The issue is what comes after the virus.

‘From all the physical examinations we have done with them, what the players are saying is that there is a complete absence of energy.’

Boly was said to be resting at home and it is unclear whether he will play in the remainder of the campaign, especially as Wolves are under no threat of relegation and are out of contention for the European places.
