Richard Stearman has re-joined Wolverhampton Wanderers on a season-long loan from Fulham.

The 29-year-old makes his Molineux return less than a year after he left Wolves to join the Cottagers in September 2015.

The defender was part of the 08/09 side that won the Championship, scoring on the final day of the season against Doncaster Rovers before Wolves lifted the league trophy.

He then helped the Club to maintain Premier League football over the next three years.

Six arrested at Wolves v Blues derby

West Midlands Police have made six arrests at the end of the Wolverhampton Wanderers and Birmingham City derby this afternoon.

Police have said there was a 'small disorder' as fans were leaving the stadium around the Stafford Street area. This was quickly contained, an investigation launched and arrests were made.

The actions of a few should not mar today’s local derby. The majority of the day passed peacefully and successfully.

However, action will always be taken against those few who don’t follow the law. Our officers were quick to respond and dispel those intent on confrontation.

An investigation is now underway. If there were people who saw something that could help our investigation or who have mobile phone footage of the disorder then they should contact the football unit on 101 at the earliest opportunity.

– Chief Inspector Nick Rowe

No further details of the arrests are available at this point.
