Wolves open to sending Yerson Mosquera out on loan in January

Wolves are reportedly ready to sanction a loan exit for Yerson Mosquera in January, but only if they can secure a replacement for him.

The defender has not played any minutes for the first-team so far this season. He is actually the only fit first-team player not to feature for Wolves in 2022/23.

Mosquera has endured a frustrating time at the club since joining in the summer of 2021.

Mosquera’s first season was massively disrupted when he suffered a bad hamstring injury on his competitive debut for the club in the Carabao Cup against Tottenham Hotspur.

The Colombian starlet had to undergo surgery, and he was on the sidelines for around five months.

Once he’d got back fit again, Mosquera was mainly with the U21s.

That game against Spurs actually remains his only appearance for the Wolves first-team.

Sadly this season the opportunities just haven’t been there for him. And now it seems the club are ready to send him out on loan to boost his development.

The Express & Star report that Wanderers are ready to sanction a move for him next month.

It’s stated the club are ‘hoping’ to get him out on loan. But it will only happen if they can bring in a replacement.

In recent days, Wolves have been linked with Atletico Madrid defender Felipe, with talks on between the two clubs.

Mosquera is reportedly wanted by Galatasaray. So if Wanderers are able to land Felipe, it could be that Mosquera heads for Turkey.

Hopefully this deal for Felipe does come to fruition, because then it should mean Mosquera gets to go out and get minutes.

Mosquera – who is reportedly one of Wolves’ lowest earners on just over £7000-a-week – looked fantastic in his first pre-season after signing for the club.

His aggression and ball-playing were traits that had many Wolves fans really excited about him.

The injury he picked up was massively unfortunate. But he’s been fit and available for a while now, and it’s been a bit of a shame he wasn’t given a chance by Bruno Lage or Steve Davis.

That’s why Wolves would be doing right by him getting him out on loan.

He’s a very talented young player and he really needs minutes after playing so little football lately.
