Wolves’ official website offered an injury update on Yerson Mosquera yesterday.

He requires hamstring surgery in London this week and could be out of action for up to five months.

That’s a crushing blow for a player whose Wolves career has not really got going yet.

Some of Mosquera’s sent messages to Mosquera wishing him well, including captain Conor Coady.

Another of Bruno Lage’s defenders, Ki-Jana Hoever also had a message for the Colombian.

Mosquera’s injury perhaps increases the chances the former Liverpool man could be pressed into action at centre-half at some stage.

 

That’s a position he can play but he has been used as a right wing-back by Lage and Nuno Espirito Santo.

Mosquera turned out for Wolves Under 23 side while he was recovering from the injury he picked up in pre-season.

Two of James Collins’ squad – Louie Moulden and Harry Birtwistle – also had well wishes for the defender.

Mosquera should be back before the end of the season but the injury is a crushing blow for him.

It also casts scrutiny on Wolves’ failure to sign a senior central defender during the summer.

That makes it more likely they’ll be in the market for a new centre-half come January, but it can be hard to get players of the required quality mid-season.
