Wolves winger Adam Hammill has no regrets over failing to make the grade as a Liverpool player.
The 23-year-old did not make a single first-team appearance for the Reds, having spent his formative years in the famed academy which has produced such talents as Steven Gerrard and Jamie Carragher.
Hammill was loaned out four times by then Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez, before joining Barnsley on a permanent basis in 2009.
He has since been rewarded with a return to the Barclays Premier League - having signed for Wolves in January - and may be handed the opportunity to face his former side at Anfield on Saturday.
But Hammill travels to Merseyside thinking of what he can achieve with Wolves, rather than pondering what might have been if he had stayed with Liverpool.
"I've got no regrets about leaving Liverpool to play regular first-team football because if it wasn't for that decision I wouldn't be where I am today, in the Premier League," Hammill told skysports.com.
"I walked away from Liverpool and dropped into the Championship, worked hard and earned the move back into the Premier League in January.
"They've made some really good signings this summer and they've changed the way they play as well, with two out-and-out wingers and the likes of Luis Suarez and Stewart Downing look very dangerous going forward."
