Highly-rated Wolves defender Danny Batth is set for a return to Hillsborough on a loan deal next season, according to reports.

Batth spent the end of last season on loan with the Owls and impressed boss Gary Megson and Wednesdayites alike with his commanding performances in the heart of defence.

The 20-year-old is on Megson’s list of players he’d like to bring to Hillsborough to bolster his squad for a promotion push from npower League 1 next season.

The fact that Wolves will still be in the Barclays Premier League next season has helped Wednesday’s cause to sign Batth on loan greatly.

It means the youngster is still likely to be down the pecking order under Wolves boss Mick McCarthy and another loan spell to gain more first-team experience will suit all parties.

Batth enjoyed his loan stint at S6 last term and would team up with centre-back partner Rob Jones, who he spent the end of last season on loan with.

The deal could be on a season-long or half-season basis and his arrival would be a big boost for Wednesdayites.
