Sent to Eintracht Frankfurt to get the game time he wasn’t getting at Wolverhampton Wanderers, Sasa Kalajdzic was looking to get his career back on track.

The towering Austrian had finally returned from his cruciate ligament tear, and was hoping the move to Germany could provide him for the perfect platform to make it into his national team ahead of the Euros.

However, fate had different plans, and the Wolves loanee suffered another cruciate ligament injury a few games into his spell with the Bundesliga side, which effectively put an end to his season and to the chances of a permanent transfer, as explained by Frankfurter Rundschau.

The German outlet look at the situation of all three of their loan players, with those being Kalajdzic, Hugo Ekitiké and Donny van de Beek, explaining what comes next for them.

Touching on the Wolves player, they point out he will no longer be able to play for the club before the end of the season and because the loan ends in the summer, ‘it is impossible’ for the German side to sign him permanently after the serious injury.

They recall this is the third time he has had an issue with his cruciate, happening twice in his left and now in his right, meaning that a lot of clubs will be reluctant to take a gamble on him going forward.

The 26-year-old is under contract with Wolves until 2027, and it will be up to the Molineux side to make sure he recovers fully in order to ensure their €18m investment wasn’t in vain.
