Daniel Tanveer "Danny" Batth (born 21 September 1990) is an English professional footballer who plays as a defender for Wolverhampton Wanderers. He has additionally represented Colchester United, Sheffield United and Sheffield Wednesday on loan. He is of Sikh Punjabi descent.[3]

Career[edit]

Born in Withymoor Village, Brierley Hill, Batth joined the Wolverhampton Wanderers Academy at the age of 10, where he overcame a bad shoulder injury to establish himself as an important figure at youth level at the club. He was one of seven academy graduates to sign a professional deal at the end of the 2008–09 season.[4]

Batth had his first taste of first-team football when he signed for League One club Colchester United on loan on 17 September 2009, initially for a month-long spell to cover injuries to Pat Baldwin, Paul Reid and Lee Beevers.[5] He made his Football League and professional debut two days later, starting in central defence alongside Magnus Okuonghae in a 2–0 win over Hartlepool United and earning the man of the match award.[6] After making five starts during his first month with the club, Batth's loan was extended until the end of the season at the Colchester Community Stadium.[7] He scored his first professional goal to secure a 1–0 victory against Oldham Athletic on 20 February 2010, nodding home a David Prutton corner to extend Colchester's run of games undefeated to five.[8] During his time with the U's, he scored an unfortunate own goal after coming on as a substitute during a 2–1 home defeat to Millwall on 5 April.[9] Batth made 17 league starts for Colchester and made on substitute appearance, scoring one goal.[2]

On his return to Molineux, Batth was named "Young Professional of the Year" at the club's end of season dinner.[4] Following this, he made his competitive debut for Wolves in a League Cup extra time home win at the expense of Southend United on 24 August 2010.[10] Three months later, he joined Sheffield United on loan for one month,[11] where he would make just a single substitute league appearance.[2] After returning to Wolves, he went out on loan once again to Sheffield, only this time to arch-rivals Sheffield Wednesday. He joined the Owls on 16 March 2011 until the end of the season.[12] His spell ended having made ten league appearances for the club.[2]

Having impressed at Sheffield Wednesday during his loan stint the previous season, the club moved to re-sign him on loan once again, agreeing an another six-month spell on 26 July 2011.[13] In December 2011, the loan was extended to the end of the season, as the Owls challenged for promotion to the Championship,[14] He scored in a 2–0 away win at Preston North End on New Year's Eve 2011,[15] and a second league goal on 10 March 2012 in a 3–0 win against Bournemouth at Hillsborough.[16] Batth finished his second stay at Sheffield Wednesday having totalled 49 appearances in all competitions, and having been part of their promotion as League One runners-up.[2]

Batth began the 2012–13 season back at Wolves, with Sheffield Wednesday manager Dave Jones ruling out a return for the defender.[17] Back in Wolves' colours, he scored the opening goal in a League Cup defeat of Northampton Town on 30 August 2012,[18] and then scored first league goal for Wolves with a late equaliser in a 2–2 draw with Leeds United on 9 February 2013.[19] In his first full season in the Wolves first-team, Batth accumulated twelve league and two cup appearances in addition to his two goals.[2] The club were however relegated from the Championship at the end of the campaign and took up the option on Batth's contract of an additional year.[20] In January 2014 he signed a long-term deal with the club that runs until Summer 2017.[21]
