Newcastle-owned Wolves defender Mike Williamson comments on his future

Mike Williamson joined Wolverhampton Wanderers on a month-long loan deal from Newcastle United last week.

Wolverhampton Wanderers defender Mike Williamson has suggested on the club’s official website that he is not too concerned about his future.

The 31-year-old joined Championship side Wolves on a month-long loan deal from Premier League outfit Newcastle United last week.

Williamson made his debut for Wolves against Birmingham City away from home on Saturday.

The former Watford made started the Championship game and played for the entire 90 minutes, as Kenny Jackett’s side won 2-0.

Williamson has said that he is happy at Wolves for the time being and is not fussed about his future.

“It is a fantastic club of course,” the Englishman told Wolves’ official website. “My focus now is on my recovery and getting ready for Tuesday.

“If I play well here then the future will take care of itself. I think I will get stronger physically as well and this gives me a great platform to build from.”

Williamson failed to make a single appearance in the Premier League this season before moving to Wolves.

It is clear that Newcastle head coach Steve McClaren wants the defender to get some playing time.

Playing regularly for a month at Wolves is not going to make Williamson a serious contender for a spot in the Magpies’ starting lineup.

Perhaps it would be best for all three parties if Williamson remains at Wolves until January.
