Wednesday look set to miss out on signing former loan star Danny Batth on a permanent basis with the defender keen on breaking into the Wolves first team next season.

The 21-year-old was one of the Owls’ star performers in their League One promotion campaign and Wednesday boss Dave Jones had made enquiries to Wolves over a permanent move.

But Wolves’ relegation from the Premier League could well suit Batth, who’s eager to play for the side where he started his career as a ten-year-old in the youth set-up.

‘I’ve been at Wolves since I was 10-years-old so my ambition is still to play regularly in the first team,’ Batth told the Express and Star.

He continued: ‘I’ve really enjoyed the experience and am now really excited about getting back to Wolves and hopefully having a good pre-season.’

Wednesday were keen to bring the rock-solid defender back to Hillsborough for next term but it looks as though they may now have to turn their attentions elsewhere to bolster their defence.
