Wolverhampton Wanderers skipper Danny Batth has headed to Middlesbrough on a loan spell today.

Having come through our Academy he has gone on to make more than 200 appearances for the club as we’ve risen back through the levels, and along the way he gained and kept our armband in the process. Having played a major role in helping us to the Championship title last season, he has yet to appear for Wolves so far in the Premier League so a loan suits everyone’s purposes here really, especially with a nod to the role the 27-year-old has played as ultimately if his future isn’t with us now given our growth, I think everybody would want to see him continue to get good game time and end up somewhere he’s 100% happy.

It’s been a long old journey for Batth having made his debut back in 2010 and despite some quibbles at points, he’s certainly well-liked within the fan base and Boro are again going for promotion this season so he should enjoy himself under Tony Pulis.

Social media is what social media does, but as you can see from the above selection at least some fans have a knowledge that isn’t built around FIFA.
