Mike Williamson discusses his Wolves and Newcastle future

The Newcastle defender is currently on loan at Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Mike Williamson says he wants to play in the Premier League again but admits the opportunity in front of him at Wolves is one worth considering, according to the Chronicle.

Indeed, the 32-year-old defender is currently on loan at Wolves from top-flight side Newcastle United and has not yet made a decision on his long-term future.

Williamson is focusing on the short term for now and hasn't pledged himself either to Newcastle or the Midlands outfit beyond next January.

The on-loan Wolves defender is quoted by the Chronicle as telling the Football League Paper: "I want to play in the Premier League again but at the minute it’s about the opportunity in front of me, getting myself in the best condition possible and making the best out of my time here at Wolves.

"After that, we’ll see what comes of it. There’s no planning past January 16 really."

Realistically, it seems a permanent move to Wolves would be the perfect option for both Newcastle and Williamson. The Magpies are struggling right now but Williamson's presence at St James' Park didn't change that.

At Molineux, the 32-year-old's chances of first-team football are much increased and his start to life at Wolves has been encouraging since leaving the Magpies on loan.

The Championship side host MK Dons this weekend, while Newcastle face former boss Alan Pardew when they take on Crystal Palace in the Premier League.
