Manchester City have recalled their goalkeeper Aro Muric from his loan spell at the Dutch club NAC Breda following the injury to Claudio Bravo.
Pep Guardiola’s No 2 keeper Bravo faces a lengthy spell on the sidelines after injuring his achilles tendon in training on Tuesday, leaving City short of cover for their first-choice Ederson.
However, both clubs have announced that Muric, 19, will now return to Manchester, and the former Swiss youth international could be in the squad to face Wolves on Saturday.
City allowed Joe Hart to join Burnley earlier this month having already sold another goalkeeper, Angus Gunn, to Southampton and loaned the young Montenegrin Muric for the season.
Daniel Grimshaw is the other keeper still at the Etihad Stadium and either he or Muric will expect to be named in the squad for Saturday’s trip to Molineux.
