The forward was signed by Jan Molby in October with a view to a free transfer at the end of the month if all parties were happy for the move to go ahead.

His loan spell was then extended to an extra month by Peter Taylor, who was keen to sign the former Everton player on a permanent basis.

However, Wolves were no longer willing to release Branch without receiving a transfer fee, and with the ex-England U21 striker demanding high wages the deal was too costly for City chairman Adam Pearson's liking.

Branch scored 3 goals in 7 appearances during his spell at Boothferry Park.
