The Football League Paper - - CHRIS DUNLAVY - By An­drew Law­ton

WOLVES skip­per Danny Batth in­sists he is ready to lead Wolves back to the Pre­mier League af­ter sign­ing a new four-year con­tract at the club.

The new deal will keep the cen­tre back tied to Mo­lineux un­til 2020 and the cen­tre-back – who turned 26 ear­lier this week – is con­fi­dent the best is still to come.

“I am de­lighted to com­mit my fu­ture to the club and a club that I have been on a great jour­ney with so far,” he said.

“I also hope dur­ing my con­tin­ued as­so­ci­a­tion with the club that we will ob­vi­ously progress and we will reach the Pre­mier League.

“I am ob­vi­ously happy with my per­for­mances so far but I like to feel that I can still get bet­ter. It is hard to sum up my feel­ings about Wolves. It is in my blood, it is my daily rou­tine, it is ev­ery­thing that I know.

“Wolves are spe­cial to me and some­thing I take very se­ri­ously. I al­ways want to look at the long term and try to help us move in the right di­rec­tion.

“Hope­fully now I have com­mit­ted my fu­ture to the club and hope­fully we can all get to­gether – fans, man­age­ment and board – and push in the right di­rec­tion.”
