Wolverhampton Wanderers defender Phil Ofosu-Ayeh has been dealt a huge blow with the news that he will be out of action for up to four months according to the Express & Star.
The 25-year-old German born full-back joined the Sky Bet Championship promotion hopefuls on a three-year deal in the summer but is yet to feature for Wolves after picking up an ankle injury in pre-season.
It has now been reported that Ofosu-Ayeh has undergone surgery on the problem and the defender will face up to four months on the sidelines as he recovers from the injury.
Ofosu-Ayeh arrived at Molineux on a free transfer after his contract with German 2. Bundesliga club Eintracht Braunschweig expired at the end of last season. The player came to Wolves with a good reputation after helping his former club to third place in the German second tier last term.
The defender started his career with German minnows SV Wilhelmshaven before moving to higher division club FC Rot-Weiss Erfurt. Spells with MSV Duisburg and VfR Aalen followed before Ofosu-Ayeh joined Eintracht Braunschweig two years ago. The player made 40 appearances for The Lions, scoring one goal but the club opted against renewing Ofosu-Ayeh’s deal at Eintracht Stadion resulting in his move to England.
