Fulham have confirmed defender Richard Stearman is returning to Wolves on a season-long loan deal.

The 29-year-old centre-back heads back to the club at which he spent seven years before a £2m switch to Craven Cottage last summer.

Stearman struggled to recapture the same form he showed at Molineux as the Whites battled against relegation last season and Fulham have signed new centre-backs.

Manager Slavisa Jokanovic has added Ragnar Sigurdsson from Krasnodar and made Michael Madl's loan move from Sturm Graz a permanent one.

Stearman began his career as a youth at Leicester City and he made over 100 appearances for the Foxes before he was snapped up by Midlands rivals Wolves in 2008.

He captained Wolves under former manager Kenny Jackett before signing for Fulham on a three-year deal on Deadline Day last year.

Fulham Football Club statement
The Club can confirm that Richard Stearman has re-joined Wolverhampton Wanderers on a season-long loan deal.

Stearman joined Fulham from Wolves just under a year ago, and has gone on to make 32 appearances.

A former captain of the Molineux club, Stearman could make his second debut at home to Burton Albion on Saturday 10th September.

We’d like to wish Richard the best of luck for the season.
