Newcastle defender Mike Williamson has had his loan spell at Sky Bet Championship side Wolves extended until January, the Barclays Premier League club have announced.

Williamson joined Wolves on an initial one-month loan deal in October but will now stay until January 16.

The 32-year-old has so far played three times for Kenny Jackett's side, during which the club have conceded just one goal and picked up four points.

Wolves boss Jackett told the club's website: "We are delighted that the deal has been extended and that Mike will be with us through a very busy December and Christmas period.

"Mike will give us some real competition and allow us to take our time with players coming back.

"He has brought a lot of experience and physical presence to the back four and to the club and has helped the players around him at a time when we have had a number of injuries to centre backs."

Prior to the switch to Wolves, Williamson had played for Newcastle - who he joined in 2010 from Portsmouth - only twice this term, both times in the Capital One Cup.
