Wolves will be without wing-back Jonny Otto for up to six weeks after he sustained a knee injury on international duty. The defender suffered ligament damage in Spain’s 1-0 win over Bosnia on Sunday and the blow has been confirmed by the Spanish football federation.
“Tests carried out on Monday show that the international full-back has suffered a partial tear of the lateral internal ligament on his right knee,” the federation said. “It is estimated he will be out for between five and six weeks.”
Otto has started all 12 of Wolves’ Premier League games this season but now faces a stint on the sidelines.
