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."

still can't see the Phil Jones thing that some people go on about. Whenever I watch him play it's a repeat of headless chicken meets a gurning Bambi on ice for 90 minutes.

F365's Top Ten Defenders Of The Season

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
