Aston Villa will be able to call upon Emiliano Martinez, Marvelous Nakamba and Bertrand Traore for their trip to Wolves after the international break, Ashley Preece reports.
This is after the UK government agreed to a quarantine exemption for players travelling to red-list countries during the international break, so long as they are double-vaccinated.
And in Villa’s case, that applies to all three of the players concerned.
After the last international break, Dean Smith’s side had to cope without Martinez and Emiliano Buendia for their trip to Chelsea because there was no such exemption in place.
How important have the Villa trio been so far?
Martinez has started every other Premier League game this season, keeping three clean sheets (via Transfermarkt).
Nakamba, meanwhile, has only made one start, with Smith handing him three substitute appearances.
And Traore’s start to the campaign has been disrupted by an injury he suffered in the opening day defeat at Watford. He’s been limited to just 43 minutes across Villa’s first six matches.
Here’s how Villa fans reacted when Preece tweeted the news.
Villa fans celebrate triple boost
