According to The Mirror (Transfer Live blog, 13:31pm, Monday, July 2, 2018), West Brom are considering a move for the 27-year-old central defender, who is reported to be rated at £4 million (click here to read more).
Batth has been at Wolves his entire professional club football career so far and is important player for the Wanderers.
However, the 27-year-old could struggle for playing time at the Molineux Stadium next season due to competition for places at the back.
During the 2017-18 campaign, the defender made 15 starts and one substitute appearance in the Premier League, scoring one goal in the process.
It is going to be hard for Batth to play week in and week out for Nuno’s side in the Premier League next season.
Wolves and West Brom fans have taken to Twitter to give their reaction to speculation on the future of Batth.
Below are some of the best comments:

The idea of #wba signing Batth reminds me of when we signed Darren Purse because Blues didn't want him.— Graeme Brown (@graeme_brown) July 2, 2018
Please dont wind me up who is the source? Pls let this happen— Mike_WV6 (@Mike_Lone_Wolf) July 2, 2018
As an academy lad who’s club captain I really can’t see him joining our local rivals, but he may not have a choice. Won’t play much if he stays at wolves.— Wolves Transfers (@WWFC_Transfers) July 2, 2018
Snap there hands off for that— Lau (@LauWolves79) July 3, 2018
I just don’t get all this revolting negativity to a loyal player. Granted, he’s probably not cut out for premiership but why the utter bile that comes out of some people’s posts?!— Emma (@emmy1977) July 3, 2018
Danny 100% gold and black, local lad.— h.patel (@hpatel15031195) July 3, 2018
No rather sell him abroad and not to our biggest rivals. Surely you have respect for Batth— Jamie (@JWWFC19) July 2, 2018
