Wolves striker George Ndah has announced his retirement from the game with immediate effect.
Ndah has been plagued by injuries
Ndah has been plagued by injuries since breaking his leg soon after his £1m arrival from Swindon in October 1999.
His frustrations increased this season when he was limited to just 16 appearances, and scored one goal.
"I have been thinking about retiring for a while. I needed a minor operation over the summer in any case," the 31-year-old told Wolves' website.
"I went to see a specialist, who had told me the knee hadn't recovered from the original injury, and if I were to continue then in later life I could be crippled.
"When you hear things like that, it all comes into perspective. I love football, but it's not worth that."
In his time at Molineux, Ndah totalled 92 first-team appearances for Wolves, 40 of them from the substitute's bench, scoring 19 goals.
He began his career at Crystal Palace, and he served Bournemouth and Gillingham on loan before moving to Swindon in 1997.
