The 19-year old full back is set to undergo surgery after sustaining a double fracture in an away match in Portugal.

The official Wolves website said: "Now back in Wolverhampton, Kostrna has undergone a Computerised Tomography scan which has revealed the need for an operation."

The club's head EDS physiotherapist Jazz Sodhi added: "From the video footage of the game we can see Kristian sliding across to intercept a cross, and his studs seem to have got stuck in the grass whilst he went over on it.

"It's one of those that seems quite innocuous at the time but turned out to be very serious - a broken distal tibia and fibula, the two bones in the shin.

"Kristian is at present recuperating in digs and is comfortable.

"It is never easy to predict recovery times, especially prior to surgery, but it is the sort of injury where you are probably looking at an initial expectation of eight months out."

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
