Wolves striker Nouha Dicko seems certain to miss the rest of the season after suffering a serious knee injury.

Dicko has been ruled out for the next nine months after tearing his anterior cruciate ligament in Saturday's 2-1 home win over Charlton.

The 23-year-old, who was starting only his second full season at Molineux, will be operated on next week.

Wolves, who are now in the market for a replacement striker, have had a bid for Cardiff City's Joe Mason turned down.
