Wolverhampton Wanderers’ right-back Jonny Otto has been handed another devastating injury blow having once again suffered a serious knee injury.

The Spanish full-back, signed from Atletico Madrid in 2018, had not long returned from serious injury having been through a lengthy recovery process for the same problem.

He has made just seven appearances this season but a statement from the club confirmed the devastating news on Monday.

It read: “Jonny has suffered a reinjury to his right knee in training on Sunday. He will need surgery to the MCL and again to the ACL.

“He will see a specialist in London this week.”

The injury means that the 27-year-old is set to miss out for the rest of the campaign as Wolves aim to secure a top ten Premier League finish, what would be their third in a row since earning promotion back to the top-fligh.

Meanwhile, it has also put paid to his chances of appearing at the upcoming European Championships for Spain in the summer.

Wolves begin yet another stint without their first-choice full back as they take on West Ham United in the Premier League on Monday evening. Nuno’s troops can be backed at a price of 17/10 with Betfair to win the game against David Moyes’ Hammers at Molineux.
