Wolves head of medical Phil Hayward said on Saturday: "Unfortunately, Willy Boly sustained a serious injury to his left ankle in training earlier today.

"Initial tests show a fracture to his fibula, and he will undergo further imaging over the coming days to determine whether surgery is required or not.

"If surgery is required that will take place during the next week."
