Kortney Hause has returned to parent club Wolverhampton Wanderers following his loan spell with Gills

Wolverhampton Wanderers have recalled defender Kortney Hause from his loan spell at Gillingham.

The 19-year-old centre back, who has impressed during his time at Priestfield and with the England U20's setup, returns to Molineux following the 1-1 draw against Bradford at Valley Parade on Saturday.

Hause was due to remain at Priestfield until January, but Wolves have taken up the option to recall him.

In total he made 17 appearances for the Gills and scored one goal, that coming in the 2-2 draw against Swindon on August 19.

Kenny Jackett said: “Ethan [Ebanks-Landell] has a hamstring injury and we don’t know how long he will be out for but he certainly won’t be available this weekend.

“Danny Batth is on four bookings which is one away from a suspension and defensively, we have let in ten goals in three games.

“So Kortney comes back in with some good experience from playing for Gillingham and England Under-20s and give us the chance to have a good look at him.

“Had we gone into next week and then recalled Kortney there wouldn’t have been the opportunity for Gillingham to bring anyone in."

Peter Taylor added: "Kortney has been brilliant for us and a great professional, but if it means he can go back to Wolves and get some games for them then we are delighted for him."
