Wolves are looking short at centre-half at the moment.
Willy Boly is in very real danger of missing the first competitive matches of the Bruno Lage era.
New signing Yerson Mosquera also has a hamstring injury and he could be out for up to three weeks.
That’s according to reports from the defender’s native Colombia, after Sunday’s 2-1 friendly win over Coventry.
Mosquera has impressed in pre-season and would have been a real contender to replace Boly.
With both men now out, Lage has a big decision to make going into the opening match of the season at Leicester on August 14.
Does he play three at the back, despite the limited options? A back four would make more sense.
That decision doesn’t need to be mad for over a week, so in the meantime, here’s how some Wolves fans reacted to the report on Twitter:

Nice to see him already emulating one of our senior centre backs, Boly! 😭— Beeo Wolf (@Beeowolf79) August 3, 2021
Been here 5 mins and the curse of the wolves is upon him— Doodle 67 (@67Doodle) August 3, 2021
thank god he aint out for 2 or 3 months but we do need signings coming in as in my opinion we am thread bare in defence, midfield and i still think another striker— Ben smith (@Bensmit76265991) August 3, 2021
The decision to play 2 games in 2 days is nothing short of ridiculous.— LoneWolf (@LoneWol99231327) August 3, 2021
So disappointing that the club is going into what should be an exciting new era under a cloud of lacking investment.— Working hard or (@Hardly_working) August 3, 2021
When Bruno struggles this season remember to look back at this window and compare it to Nuno's first window in the Premier League, its night & day
