The 29-year-old has told Wolves' official website that he has no plans to retire and is focussing on returning to fitness in time for pre-season training.
"Most players gave got some form of insurance in place and look into it at the start of each season," he said.
"You need cover your back and I'm no different. I've had some serious injuries in my career which I have to make my insurance company aware of.
"But I can say that I have absolutely no intention of retiring. The surgeon is still confident I can play again. I'm going to be in over the summer working on my rehabilitation."
