Dexter Lembikisa, a Wolves academy graduate, has been recalled after a loan spell at Rotherham United.

The Jamaica international, 20, spent the first part of the season with the Championship’s bottom club, where he was a regular.

In his first loan spell away from Molineux, Lembikisa made 27 appearances at the AESSEAL New York Stadium, scoring once in a 2-1 victory over Norwich in September.

Wolves have invoked their option to recall the full-back in the middle of the season. Lembikisa has made two senior starts and four appearances for Wolves.

Wolves are reportedly considering another loan for the highly regarded right-back, with a number of other Championship clubs reportedly interested in his services.

Prior to his loan move, Wolves pathways manager Steve Davis stated that Lembikisa is “more than capable of doing well in the Championship.”

Gloucestershire-born Lembikisa has been with Wolves since he was 13 years old. He is eligible to represent Jamaica through his mother and earned his senior international debut in March before competing in the CONCACAF Gold Cup. He’s played in seven games.

Rotherham are seven points from safety and have recently appointed Leam Richardson as manager after the sacking of former boss Matt Taylor, who made the full-back his first loan signing last summer.
