Daniel Tanveer “Danny” Batth (born 21 September 1990) is an English-born footballer of Sikh Punjabi descent who plays as a central defender for Wolverhampton Wanderers.
Danny is a product of Wolverhampton Wanderers’ academy, who signed professional forms in May 2009. He made his senior debut on 19 September 2009 on loan at Colchester United against Hartlepool, and remained with the U’s for the rest of the 2009–10 season. Danny scored his first professional goal in a 1–0 win over Oldham.
The defender made his Wolves debut in a League Cup win over Southend United in August 2010. Three months later, he went out on loan for a second time, when he joined Championship side Sheffield United on a one-month emergency loan, making one appearance. He finished the season at another Sheffield side, as he was loaned to League One side Sheffield Wednesday for the remainder of the campaign.
On 26 July 2011, Danny again joined Sheffield Wednesday on a six-month loan deal, initially until 3 January, but extended to run until the end of the season. He was part of the Owls’ team that won promotion from League One, making 49 appearances in total for them during the campaign.
Danny returned to his parent club – since relegated back to the Championship – for the 2012–13 season and scored his first goal for them on 30 August 2012, in a League Cup tie at Northampton. He made twelve league appearances, but was mostly behind Roger Johnson, Christophe Berra and later Kaspars Gorkšs in their managers’ plans during another poor season for Wolves that saw them relegated once more.
The 2014-15 season was Batth’s first as a regular in the Championship and his impressive form from the previous season continued. He remained as the only ever-present since Kenny Jackett’s arrival, playing in every game of a side that had won 50 out of 86 games.
