It appears that Sasa Kalajdzic will not be bouncing back on loan at Eintracht Frankfurt from Wolverhampton Wanderers like he thought he would.

The Austrian striker was allowed to leave Molineux in January after he felt undervalued by Gary O’Neil, and he had started well, picking up an assist in five appearances to date.

However, the player was forced off in the 3-3 draw against SC Freiburg at the weekend, and the news for the Wolves man is bad, according to Sky Germany.

The outlet explain the Bundesliga club will ‘probably have to do without’ the player until the end of the season, as Eintracht Frankfurt announced he suffered the ‘rupture of cruciate and lateral ligaments’ in his right knee.

With him currently only on loan from Wolves at the German club, it remains to be seen what is going to happen with the deal, and where the Austrian will undergo his treatment.

If he does fail to return before the end of the season, the Premier League side will have to make a decision about his future, with Frankfurt potentially interested in trying him out next year since they didn’t get much out of him this time around.

First, though, Kalajdzic will need to return from a second bad injury in as many years. He is under contract with Wolves until 2027.
