Wayne Hennessey has set his sights on making a quickfire return to the Barclays Premier League with Wolves after undergoing surgery to repair his torn cruciate ligament.
The Wales number one is targeting a return to action in six months after suffering the setback in the goalless draw at Sunderland 12 days ago.
Hennessey, 25, had been linked him with a move away from Molineux following relegation from the Premier League.
But he will not be fit to play until mid-October and is aiming to help Wolves return to the top flight.
Hennessey said: "I'll work hard over the summer and hopefully be back playing for Wolves when I'm ready again.
"Our aim now has to be to bounce back by getting promoted. We've got a lot of players who came up through the Championship, so we know what the league's about. Hopefully we can do it again."
Hennessey added on his injury: "It looks like being about six months, but it's not an injury you can rush.
"The operation went well and I'm already making progress each day. The surgeon has done a really good job and it's healing now.
