A graduate of the Club’s Academy, Daniel Batty was involved with the first team squad on a number of occasions during the 2016/17 season.
The central midfielder also enjoyed a fine campaign with the U23s with his impressive form earning him a new two-year deal.
2017/18 brought a senior debut, in a Carabao Cup tie against Doncaster Rovers, as well as substitute appearances in FA Cup clashes with Nottingham Forest and Chelsea. He also spent a period on loan with FC Halifax Town.
He signed a new deal with the Club in April 2018, keeping him at the KCOM Stadium until at least 2020.
