Southampton trio James Ward-Prowse, Ryan Bertrand and Theo Walcott have all been pictured in full training ahead of Monday’s Premier League clash with Wolves.
The three players have all had recent injury concerns but appear to be back in contention for Saints’ trip to Molineux at the beginning of next week.
Ward-Prowse was forced to withdraw from England’s squad for the current international break with a tight hamstring, whilst Bertrand had a hamstring complaint that kept him out of the win over Saints’ Premier League win over Newcastle.
Walcott injured his hand in that match too but looks set for another start against Wolves.
Saints released pictures – via southamptonfc.com – of those players not on international duty training at Staplewood this week in preparation for their next domestic fixture.
Ralph Hasenhuttl and his side will be looking to build on their impressive start to the season that has seen them into the top-four ahead of the upcoming round of games.

Ward-Prowse, Bertrand and Walcott are key players in their own right at the moment and will surely play a big part if Saints are to claim a sixth Premier League win of the campaign.
Ward-Prowse has taken the captain’s armband this season and has thrived in the role whilst also showing his abilities as the complete midfielder in the current system.
Bertrand provides defensive solidity and an attacking outlet from left-back and is vital with the experience he brings to the team.
Walcott’s performance against Newcastle was excellent and he has made a real impact with the pace and creativity that he has brought to the attack. He will be crucial whilst Danny Ings is out and will be eager to get his first goal back on the South Coast soon.
Danny Ings, Will Smallbone and Mohammed Salisu remain on the Saints injury list and will boost Saints further when they become available for selection.
