Wolverhampton Wanderers are set to sign Newcastle United centre-back Mike Williamson on a month’s loan, according to Sky Sports.
The thirty-one year old moved to St James’ Park from Portsmouth in January 2010 and has since racked up one hundred and seventy-one appearances in all competitions, scoring twice.
However, his only game-time under Steve McClaren has come in the League Cup and he is now set to leave on a temporary basis.
Williamson began his career with Torquay United, and then moved on to Wycombe Wanderers and Watford before securing a move to Fratton Park.
The signing will be welcomed by Wolves who have just seen fellow centre-back Kortney Hause ruled out for six weeks having been stretchered off in Saturday’s 3-1 home defeat to Middlesbrough.
Next up for Kenny Jackett’s men is a short trip to Birmingham City, and the away win can be backed at a price of 15/8.
