Middlesbrough sign Wolves midfielder Adam Hammill on loan
Thursday 01 March 2012
Middlesbrough have secured the loan signing of Wolves midfielder Adam Hammill until the end of the season.
The 24-year-old, who has been capped once for England at Under-21 level, joined the Barclays Premier League club from Barnsley in January 2011 but has managed to accumulate just three league starts.
Boro boss Tony Mowbray told the club's official website: "Adam is capable of bringing a different ingredient to the squad and giving us something we've missed for a bit.
"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."
Hammill began his career with hometown club Liverpool but failed to make a first-team appearance before he moved to the Tykes, where he scored 13 goals in 78 league games.
