The club has issued the following Statement: “Derby County Football Club can confirm that Andre Wisdom has been the victim of an unprovoked assault and robbery.
“He sustained injuries which resulted in him being admitted to hospital, where he is in a stable condition.
“Merseyside police are investigating and the club will focus its efforts on supporting Andre and his family. Therefore we will not be making any further comment at this time.”
