Mike Williamson raves about every aspect of Wolverhampton Wanderers' team after Newcastle United return

Molineux - Wolves - Billy Wright Stand

Newcastle United cut Mike Williamson's loan spell at Wolverhampton Wanderers short.

Mike Willamson has told Newcastle United TV that he very much enjoyed his loan spell at Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Williamson moved to Wolves back in October, and he made a big impression at Molineux – going straight into Kenny Jackett’s starting line-up.

Williamson managed to help improve the standard of Wolves’ defensive displays considerably, and the commanding centre-back only had praise for his old teammates.

He said: "I was really enjoying myself, it is a great club, players are very good – a real togetherness, and I like the manager who was fantastic – to work with him and learn from him.

“They are a young group and a lot of potential there. I think I brought communication, a bit of experience. We were very solid and performances were growing each game.”

Williamson’s time at the Championship club was cut short, as Newcastle recalled him following an injury to Jamaal Lascelles.

With Lascelles set to spend time on the sidelines, Newcastle’s cover in defence looked limited, and they had little choice put to bring Williamson back.

The rangy centre-back returns to St. James’ Park with a point to prove, and if he keeps up his form for Wolves he should actually enhance the quality of Newcastle’s team.

The 32-year-old was part of Wolves defence which only conceded three times in the five matches that he played for them.

Williamson leaves Wolves with the side sitting in 15th place in the Championship table – seven points behind the play-off places.
