Mike Williamson outlines what he's already spotted in Wolverhampton Wanderers training

Wolverhampton Wanderers have signed Mike Williamson on loan from Newcastle United.

Mike Williamson has told the Express and Star that he has already been impressed by the quality of players at Wolverhampton Wanderers in training.

Williamson has signed for Wolves on a month-long loan from Newcastle United, and he trained with his new teammates for the first time on Thursday.

The experienced defender has quickly noted the quality that Wolves possess, and he is hoping to help nurture some of the club’s youngsters during his stay at Molineux.

"I hope I can show my experience and that can benefit the team and we can get some results," he said. "Wolves have got some fantastic players, I’ve seen already in training, I think similar to any team, a bit of confidence at the right time and we can push forward.

“It’s a great opportunity for me to learn and experience a new culture and a new way of doing things."

Williamson’s addition to Wolves is crucial, due to the volume of injuries that the club have suffered this season.

Wolves have seen a number of their players ruled out through injury, with their defensive options looking particularly thin at the moment.

Kenny Jackett has been keen to bring in added quality for some time, and he will be delighted to have finally got Williamson’s deal over the line.

The rangy centre-back could come straight into Wolves’ squad for their weekend match against local rivals Birmingham City.
