Tuesday 07 February 2012
The Wolves midfielder Emmanuel Frimpong is returning to Arsenal after his loan spell with Wolverhampton Wanderers was cut short by a serious knee injury that has ended his season.
The 20-year-old ruptured the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee in Saturday's 2-1 win at Queen's Park Rangers. The former England youth international Frimpong suffered the same injury to his left knee in 2010.

The defender received a straight red from the referee Martin Atkinson after a tackle on David Meyler. The Stoke manager, Tony Pulis, suggested Meyler had play-acted.

A Plymouth statement said: "We have received a number of complaints relating to crowd behaviour during Saturday's game. We are conducting a thorough investigation."
