Batth joined the club’s academy at the age of 10 and has remained at the club since, only leaving for loan spells with Colchester, Sheffield United and Sheffield Wednesday.

The club’s supporters expressed their delight on Twitter to the news that Batth  has pledged his future at the Molineux Stadium.

The defender has featured in 159 encounters for the club and became an integral part of the Wolves defence after the Midlands side dropped down to League One.

He is the current captain of Walter Zenga’s side and has also played in nine matches for the club this season, adding a goal in the 3-1 victory over rivals Birmingham.

Batth has developed into a crucial member of the Wolves side and been a mainstay in the side desperate a huge summer overhaul of players.

He has helped the club keep three clean sheets in their opening eight league matches and helped the team amass 12 points so far.
