Wolves goalkeeper Matt Murray will miss the start of the club's Premier League campaign after suffering a complication during his recovery from knee surgery.

The 28-year-old, who has suffered badly with knee injuries for large parts of the last six years, ruptured his patella tendon while on loan at Hereford last November and was forced to undergo surgery in a bid to repair the damage.

All was going well, with the shot-stopper hoping to return to pre-season training this summer, however, after recently feeling some discomfort it was deemed best to perform a clean-up operation to repair an area of tendon that was healing slower than expected.

Although the latest operation has interrupted his rehabilitation, Murray is hoping to return to Compton in the next couple of weeks, but a timescale has not officially been put on his comeback.

Wolves' head of medical services Steve Kemp told the club's official website: "Although this is obviously a setback for Matt, the surgeon and our medical team are pleased with how the surgery went and are all confident he will make a full recovery.

"Matt is no stranger to these sort of setbacks in his rehabilitation with previous injuries, but he has never let such things hold him back. I have no doubt he will again remain positive and show the high levels of professionalism and strength of character he is renowned for to continue his recovery."
