Wolves’ Sasa Kalajdzic joins Eintracht Frankfurt on loan for rest of the season

Wolves striker Sasa Kalajdzic has joined Eintracht Frankfurt on loan until the end of the season.

Having moved to Molineux from Stuttgart in August 2022, the 26-year-old Austria international then suffered an ACL injury on his Wolves debut a few days later.

Returning to action this term, he has made 13 appearances, scoring three goals, with only one Premier League start within that.

Sporting director Matt Hobbs said on Wolves’ official website: “Sasa has been incredibly unlucky.

“He got injured on his debut having come back from a bad injury. He worked hard to get back fit, but the form of our forwards has meant his game time has been limited.

“After the best part of two years out injured, the best thing for Sasa and us long-term is for him to go and get lots of football, in a league he knows well and one which is similar to the Premier League in terms of physicality and style of play.

“Sasa has shown he’s a natural finisher, but after his injuries, he needs to trust his body again. I hope he goes there and does really well, plays lots of games, and is able to help us next season.

“The human side comes into it because Sasa’s wife is due to give birth later this month, so if he was going to go out, it felt the right thing to do, to not delay and let them get settled with housing and hospitals, for example, ready for the birth of their child.”
