Wolves defender Ethan Ebanks-Landell has been ruled out for the remainder of the season with a broken foot.

Ebanks-Landell limped out of Friday's 2-1 defeat to Middlesbrough after being injured during the first half at the Riverside.

A scan has revealed Ebanks-Landell broke his fifth metatarsal and the 23-year-old will undergo surgery immediately.

Wolves medical chief Phil Haywardon told the club's website, "Ethan is expected to be sidelined for between 10 to 12 weeks so unfortunately his season looks to be over."

Head coach Kenny Jackett said: "It is bad news for Ethan who had come through a good run in the team and had been looking for that breakthrough for a while.

"Players need that run in the team to continue to develop and it is a really frustrating injury for Ethan. For the team now we must push on and there is a big opportunity now for Kortney (Hause) to come back into the side."
