Walsall FC announced the signing of highly-rated central midfielder George Dobson on a season-long loan from West Ham United in July 2016.

The promising 18-year-old became the Saddlers’ sixth signing of the summer as manager Jon Whitney reshaped his squad ahead of the new campaign.

Dobson started his career with Arsenal, where he captained their Under-18 side and also featured in the UEFA Youth League.

He signed for his boyhood club West Ham in July 2015 and helped the Hammers win the Under-21 Premier League Cup last season, beating Hull on penalties in the final.

The youngster made 21 appearances for their Under-21 side in 2015/16 and was also named on the first-team substitutes’ bench for their Premier League games against Tottenham and Everton.
