Yerson Mosquera completed loan move to FC Cincinnati

Wolves defender Yerson Mosquera has completed a loan move to MLS club FC Cincinnati.

The Colombian youngster is heading to the States to embark on a new adventure, after a frustrating past few months.

Mosquera is the only player in Wolves’ squad who has been fit and available since the start of the season and not played any minutes.

The 21-year-old has been stuck behind Nathan Collins, Maximilian Kilman and Toti Gomes in the pecking order at Molineux.

He might have featured for Wanderers in Carabao or FA Cup games.

But Bruno Lage, Steve Davis and Julen Lopetegui have all been unwilling to play him for reason or another.

Mosquera actually came very close to making his Premier League debut against Manchester City at Molineux before the World Cup.

He was stripped and ready to come on in that game. But Lage then changed his mind.

Wolves recently brought in Craig Dawson from West Ham United.

Sporting director Matt Hobbs said after that deal that the club was looking to get Mosquera out on loan.

And they’ve been able to do that, with FC Cincinnati completing a deal last night.

There hasn’t yet been official confirmation of the move from either club. But Express & Star journalist Liam Keen has confirmed the deal is indeed ‘done’.

So Mosquera has sealed his loan move, and we now await the official announcement.

Wolves have made the right call here. After the arrival of Dawson, Mosquera is even less likely to get minutes with the first-team.

He missed a lot of football last season as a result of that bad hamstring he picked up shortly after signing.

It is paramount that he gets back playing regular football.

The club has very high hopes for their £4.5 million signing. When he came in as the first signing under Lage, it was reported Wolves felt they’d landed a star of the future. And it’s time he started to making some proper progress in terms of his development.
