Deal completed for Wolves man
Wolverhampton Wanderers winger Adam Hammill has joined Huddersfield Town on loan until January ahead of this evening’s transfer deadline, pending confirmation of clearance from the Football League.
The exciting 24 year-old wide man has a proven track record at Championship level and it is hoped that clearance comes through to allow him to be involved in Saturday’s game at Ipswich Town.
A goal-scoring winger who can play on either flank, Adam adds genuine competition for places alongside the likes of Sean Scannell and Danny Ward among others.
“It has been a little bit frantic!” Adam said of the final day of the transfer window. “Me and the missus jumped in the car and have flown down the M62.
“I’m delighted to be signing here. I want to get as much game time as possible and show everyone what I can do.
“I just want to play football – that’s all I’ve ever wanted to do. For whatever reason it hasn’t quite worked out for me at Wolves, but I’m looking forward to my future now and working with some familiar faces and getting going.
“I’ve worked with Simon in the past at Blackpool and I know what he expects from me, so that was a big reason to come. I also know a few of the players – Keith Southern and Calum Woods – and everything I’ve heard about the Club tells me it’s a really good place to be. I’ve seen the way the team plays and that has caught my eye too.”
A product of the Liverpool Academy, former England under-21 international Adam never made an appearance for the Anfield club, instead getting his first taste of senior football via a loan spell at Scottish outfit Dunfermline Athletic in early 2007 – which included an appearance in the Scottish Cup Final.
A season-long loan at npower Championship side Southampton followed in the 2007/08 campaign, which heralded 28 further appearances.
Hammill signed a new five year contract with Liverpool in the summer of 2008 before heading out on loan again, this time to Blackpool. He returned to Anfield in January before heading out to Barnsley; in total, he made 37 Championship appearances that term.
Adam impressed at Oakwell and they signed him on a permanent deal in August 2009. He immediately became a regular in the side, making 43 appearances in his first season.
A further 27 appearances – and eight goals – in the first half of the new campaign alerted Wolves to his ability and the Premier League club triggered a release clause to take him to Molineux in the January transfer window on a three year contract.
He made 10 appearances in the latter half of the Premier League campaign and another 13 followed next season, but Hammill was then loaned out to Championship Middlesbrough in March 2012 for the rest of the season.
