Wolves captain Danny Batth has signed a new four-year contract with the Chinese-owned Championship club.

He becomes the first existing Wolves squad member to commit to a new deal since the takeover by Shanghai-based Fosun International, who have also sanctioned 11 new signings.

"Wolves are a club I've been on a great journey with so far," said 26-year-old Black Country-born Batth.

"But it's not just about getting there, it's about staying there."

Batth has made 237 career appearances, including 147 league starts for Wolves, having also been out on loan with Colchester United, Sheffield United and Sheffield Wednesday twice.

"I've been with Wolves right from the age of 10 years old, all the way through the age groups now to being captain," he said. "That's something I'm very proud of."

Wolves stand 10th in the Championship after eight games under new boss Walter Zenga this season.
