Former Red Adam Hammill joins Wolves

Liverpool youth academy graduate Adam Hammill has returned to the Premier League after joining Wolves from Barnsley and could make his top-flight bow against his former club.

The 22 year old winger was reportedly allowed to leave the Yorkshire side due to a £500,000 release clause in his contract, with some reports suggesting Liverpool had “first option” at a reduced price.

Hammill left Anfield for Oakwell in 2009, having spent three years at youth and reserve level but never quite breaking into the first team. He’d impressed on loan at Dunfermline, Southampton, Blackpool and Barnsley between 2007 and 2009.

Hammill was believed to be on the verge of re-joining Blackpool but he has now joined Mick McCarthy’s side – whom Liverpool face on Saturday.

Speculation is rife that Hammill’s arrival at Molineux will now pave the way for winger Matt Jarvis to join Liverpool.
