Wolves teammates send messages to Mosquera after injury update

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.
