Reports have detailed how the Ohio Cup – a four-team event due to take place in July and featuring both Wolves and fellow Premier League side Newcastle United – was canceled on late notice.

The Express & Star, however, understand Wolves will still be crossing the Atlantic in preparation for the 2022/23 campaign and will be making new arrangements for the trip.

The Ohio Cup was to have two matches hosted in Cincinnati and two in Columbus, with two top-flight Spanish teams – believed to be Villarreal and Valencia – also involved in the competition.

Wolves are said to be disappointed with the delay in the cancellation, but continue to travel to the United States regardless.

The exact details of where they will be heading are not yet known, but tour dates could be announced in the coming weeks.

Before that, Bruno Lage’s side will be hoping to wrap up the current season with a positive performance at title-seeking Liverpool.

It promises to be a lively day at Anfield on Sunday as the Reds aim to grab three points while hoping Manchester City slide at home to Villa.

Wolves are on a six-game winless run and a summer team rebuild appears to be on the cards.

Lage has stressed the need for ready-made first-team signings following last weekend’s 1-1 draw with relegated Norwich at Molineux.
