The Football League Paper - - NEWS - By Joshua Richards

MIKE Wil­liamson has re­turned to Wolves fol­low­ing a suc­cess­ful loan spell ear­lier in the sea­son to sign an 18-month con­tract at Mo­lineux.

The 32-year-old de­fender played five games for Wolves in Oc­to­ber and Novem­ber be­fore re­turn­ing to par­ent club New­cas­tle United but he is back in the Mid­lands per­ma­nently.

And man­ager Kenny Jack­ett is ex­cited to see the im­pres­sion that his ar­rival will have on the rest of the squad.

“Mike made an ex­cel­lent im­pact whilst here with us on loan, and brought his con­sid­er­able ex­pe­ri­ence and lead­er­ship to the back four,” said Jack­ett.

“We will be pleased to se­cure his ser­vices and are look­ing for­ward to get­ting him back here and mak­ing an­other pos­i­tive im­pact on the team.”

Jack­ett has also brought in Ha­keem Od­of­fin, who ar­rives from Bar­net on a twoand-a-half year con­tract for an undis­closed fee.

The 17-year-old de­fender had stints with Premier League Tot­ten­ham and Read­ing be­fore mov­ing to the Bees and will join up with Wolves’ U21 squad.

“Wolves was def­i­nitely the best op­tion for me and I just can’t wait to get started,” said Od­of­fin.

“I def­i­nitely learnt a lot play­ing with the first team at Bar­net and I can hope­fully bring that ex­pe­ri­ence for­ward and work hard.

“Bar­net have been great about it so I was never wor­ried and I knew I was al­ways go­ing to end up com­ing here. I’m just happy to get it done.”

SWITCH: Mike Wil­liamson

HAPPY: Kenny Jack­ett
