Ex-Red leaves Wolves on loan

Former Barnsley star Adam Hammill has joined Championship rivals Middlesbrough on loan until the end of the season.

Hammill, who left Oakwell in January last year in favour of a move to Wolves has made just 23 appearances for the Premier League side, after a £700,000 move.

Boro boss Tony Mowbray spoke of the move:

"Adam's capable of bringing a different ingredient to the squad,"

"He also has a bit of individuality, he's versatile enough to play in any midfield position and he creates extra competition within the squad."

The Scouse-born winger started out at his hometown club Liverpool, failing to make a single appearance before being snapped up by the Reds after an impressive loan spell, scoring 13 in 78 appearances in his year and a half at Oakwell.

Hammill is likely to line up against the Reds on Tuesday night when they travel to the Riverside to play Middlesbrough.
