Rumours spread last night that Mike Williamson was set to join Wolves on an initial one month loan.

Now it has been confirmed early Thursday afternoon that a one month emergency loan arrangement has been finalised.

The defender hasn’t played a single minute of Premier League football this season and even lost his place on the bench to Jamaal Lascelles.

With Fabricio Coloccini having his one match ban overturned yesterday by The FA, it removed the last obstacle to Mike Williamson being allowed to move and get some regular football.

The player’s last Premier League match was the win over West Ham on the final day of last season, though before that his previous eight starts were the team’s history making run of eight defeats in a row.

Wolves are facing an injury crisis and this week manager Kenny Jackett said there was an urgent need to bring in at least one defender on loan.

Kortney Hause and Ethan Ebanks-Landell are both injured and Dominic Iorfa is also a doubt for the weekend.

Wolves have lost their last three matches and Mike Williamson is almost certain to be thrown straight into a crucial West Midlands derby against rivals Birmingham City on Saturday.

Recent months have seen both Shola Ameobi and Sammy Ameobi almost join Wolves.

Sammy chose Cardiff ahead of Wolves for his one year loan arrangement.

Whilst Wolves were just one of a handful of Championship clubs where Shola Ameobi had trials at with out agreeing a deal, before Bolton signed him on a pay as you play deal last week.
