Premier League club Wolves could force a Worcestershire pensioner into bankruptcy.
Peter Davies claims he created the existing club badge as a school boy and has since filed a copyright complaint.
Mr Davies, in his 70s, lost the resulting High Court case which he said left him with a ‘mistrust of the system’.
As a result, he is being forced to pay the club’s legal fees, according to a BBC report.

As reported in the Express and Star, Mr Davies claims he originally draw the prototype at school to enter it for an art gallery.
He claims he made the sketches in the early 1960s and added he recognised the drawing in 1979 when Wolves released a new kit.
He filed to register his design in 2016, while the club previously failed to have the case thrown out.
