Wolves defender Scott Golbourne has sealed a move to Bristol City for an undisclosed fee – 10 years after he left the club where he started his career.
After coming up through the ranks of the academy, the Bristolian left Ashton Gate in 2006 to join Reading.
He since had transfers to Exeter City, Barnsley and Wolves, as well as loan spells at Wycombe Wanderers, Bournemouth and Olham Athletic, but has now made the move back to his home town club on a two-and-a-half-year deal.

Interim Boss John Pemberton told bcfc.co.uk: “Scott is a Bristol lad and that’s important to us.
“He’s a left-back. At the moment we’ve either got Joe Bryan, who’s more of an attacking force, or Derrick Williams, who is more of a defensive type. It’s about getting that balance in between.
“Scott has been here before, he’s athletic and someone we need for this football club.
The left-back, who signed for Wolves from Barnsley in 2013, only missed six games of the 2013-2014 season as Kenny Jackett’s side romped home to win the League One title.
However his last appearance in a Gold and Black shirt came over a month ago in a 3-2 home defeat by Leeds United, with Matt Doherty coming in to vacate the left-back position.
Golbourne has been handed the number 13 shirt and will go straight into the squad to face Birmingham City on Saturday.
