Mike Williamson discloses what Kenny Jackett told him about Wolverhampton Wanderers in their first meeting

Wolves Stadium

Newcastle United defender Mike Williamson has recently had his loan at Wolverhampton Wanderers extended until January.

Mike Williamson has revealed to Wolverhampton Wanderers’ official website that Kenny Jackett told him he would be a good fit at Molineux in their very first meeting.

Williamson signed on loan at Wolves from Newcastle United last month, and he has recently had his deal extended until January.

The experienced centre-back says that he has very much enjoyed his time at Wolves so far, as he has been able to use his know-how to good effect.

“Newcastle has quite a young squad too so it is quite similar in that respect,” he said.

“For me I pride myself in my communication on the pitch especially and I feel that respect has gone well.

“From the first time I spoke to the gaffer he said this was potentially a very good fit for me because it is a young group and that is how it has turned out.”

Wolves possess one of the youngest teams in the Championship, and their naivety was regularly exposed in the early part of the campaign.

Jackett’s side were guilty of conceding soft goals far too regularly, but they have improved considerably in that respect since Williamson’s arrival.

The Newcastle loanee has helped Wolves to keep two clean sheets in the three matches he has played so far, and he has formed a formidable partnership with Danny Batth in the heart of the Midland outfit’s defence.

Williamson’s next match for Wolves is likely to come at the weekend, when his temporary side take on Ipswich Town.
