Wolves have now confirmed that they have reached agreement with Newcastle United on a transfer fee for Mike Williamson.

The Midlands club have sold Scott Golbourne to Bristol City in order to help finance the move and create room in the squad.

Using their Twitter account, Wolves said that they are just waiting for Williamson to arrive at Molineux to complete the deal.


‘Wolves can also confirm that an undisclosed fee has been agreed with Newcastle United to sign defender Mike Williamson on a permanent deal.

Williamson is now due at Wolves to complete the move following an impressive spell on loan towards the end of last year.’

Manager Kenny Jackett once again referred back to how well Mike Williamson had done on loan and he will be hoping the Newcastle player can help with a late surge towards the play-off places.

With 18 games left to go, Wolves are eight points off sixth position and their next match is at home to Bolton on Tuesday, with Mike Williamson just missing out on possibly facing Shola Ameobi – the former Newcastle striker unable to continue at Bolton due to a transfer embargo, even though he had offered to play for nothing.

Kenny Jackett:

“We are losing one defender and bringing another one in which balances things out, and we are looking forward to Mike being back with us.

“He made an excellent impact whilst on loan, and brought his considerable experience and leadership to the back four.

“We will be pleased to secure his services and are looking forward to getting him back here and making another positive impact on the team.”
