Wolves goalkeeper Hennessey to miss six months

Wolverhampton goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey is set to miss the next six months after sustaining a knee injury in his team's 0-0 draw with Sunderland last weekend.

Hennessey has been one of the most consistent players at the club this season, but after seeing a knee specialist on Tuesday, it has been confirmed that the Wales international damaged his cruciate ligament.

The 25-year-old has started 58 consecutive games for the club but will now miss out on a chance to represent Team GB at the Olympics this summer.

Dorus de Vries will take Hennessey's place between the posts on Sunday against Manchester City.
