“He’s  stable and my other brother is on his way there. It’s crazy. I can’t believe it.”

A statement from Derby County said:

“Andre Wisdom has been the victim of an unprovoked assault and robbery. He sustained injuries which resulted in him being admitted to hospital.”

The attack came hours after Wisdom and teammates celebrated promotion-chasing Derby’s Saturday’s  2-1 Championship win over Reading.

A source said: “It’s awful news. He must have been on a high after his team played so well.

“To then have something like this happen is just tragic. It was totally unprovoked.

“It’s impossible to imagine what his family must be going through.

“All his fans wish him a speedy recovery and hopefully he’ll be back on the pitch again soon.”

Wisdom was  praised by fans after Saturday’s win, in which Derby skipper Wayne Rooney got the winner. 

One tweeted: “Only one Man of the Match for me  — what a performance from Andre Wisdom.”

Wisdom moved to Championship club Derby from Liverpool in 2017 after signing for them when he was just 14.

Wisdom has previously played on loan for Norwich City and West Bromwich Albion.

Andre Wisdom recently dated model Iskra Lawrence, who is a body positivity Instagrammer and has over 4.6m followers.
