Willy Boly had a first-half goal disallowed by VAR as Wolves drew 0-0 with 10-man Leicester City at Molineux.

The hosts thought they had gone ahead on the stroke of half-time when Boly headed in following a short-corner routine, but the Foxes earned a reprieve when replays appeared to show Pedro Neto was marginally offside before he whipped the ball across.

Wolves had a numerical advantage for the final 14 minutes when Choudhury collected a second yellow card for bringing down Leander Dendoncker after he had slipped.

However, the hosts could not make their numerical advantage count, Raul Jimenez heading wide when unmarked eight yards out in stoppage time, with Wolves moving up to seventh and Leicester staying third.

Wolves defender Willy Boly will be out for "a number of months" after surgery on a fractured fibula.

The 28-year-old damaged the bone in his left ankle during training last Saturday and subsequently missed the 1-1 Premier League draw with Newcastle United.

The club confirmed in a statement on Wednesday that Boly is set to be sidelined for some time, although they have not discounted a possible return this season.

Wolves head of medical Phil Hayward said via the club's website: "Willy had surgery in London this morning to repair the bone with a small metal plate and screws.

"The procedure went as planned with no complications and he will now return to Compton to begin the early stages of his rehabilitation.

"Willy will be in a boot for the first six weeks, working hard to maintain fitness and muscle bulk in the leg before progressing to more functional activities.

"In terms of time scales, a lot depends on how he progresses in the first few weeks and how well the fracture heals."

Boly has made 16 appearances in the Premier League and Europa League this season and scored the only goal in a 1-0 win at Besiktas earlier this month.

Wolves have suffered a major blow after defender Willy Boly suffered a suspected broken ankle in training on Saturday.

Boly has not travelled with the team for Sunday's Premier League match away to Newcastle United.

A full diagnosis and a decision on whether the 28-year-old requires surgery will follow after he has undergone further tests.

"Unfortunately, Willy Boly sustained a serious injury to his left ankle in training," said Wolves' head of medical Phil Hayward.

"Initial tests show a fracture to his fibula and he will undergo further imaging over the coming days. If surgery is required that will take place during the next week."

Boly has been a crucial player for manager Nuno Espirito Santo this season, starting eight of Wolves' nine Premier League games after playing in 36 top-flight matches last season.

He scored the winner in Wolves' Europa League win away to Besiktas earlier this month and has helped his side go on a seven-match unbeaten run that has spanned over a month.

Reports this week suggested the club were keen to tie Boly down to a new contract amid speculation he was garnering interest from Champions League teams in England and overseas.
