Teenage winger completes loan switch...

Walsall FC are delighted to announce the signing of highly-rated teenage winger Will Randall on loan from Wolves until the end of the season. 

The 19-year-old progressed through his hometown club Swindon’s youth ranks and made his professional debut in a 2-1 defeat against Rotherham in May 2014, the day after his 17th birthday. 

The talented youngster made a total of 11 appearances for the Robins in all competitions before joining Wolves for an undisclosed fee in January 2016. 

Randall has featured on five occasions for the Molineux club, with all his appearances coming in this season’s Checkatrade Trophy. 

“I’m delighted to have got the deal done and to be here at Walsall,” said Randall, who will wear the number 18 shirt. 

“I trained here at the start of the month and the gaffer made me feel very comfortable. He explained what was expected of me and I liked the set-up. 

“I’ve played in League One before with Swindon and I want to prove to people that I can do it at this level. 

“I like to play wide left, I’m right footed and I like one-on-one situations. I try to create and score goals, and I’ll work hard for the team. 

“During my time here, I want to play as many games as I can and help the club move higher up the table. The team have done well recently and we want to finish the season strongly.” 

Manager Jon Whitney added: “Will is really high thought of at Wolves. He’s quick, dynamic and he’ll be a good addition to the squad. 

“I noticed him when he played against us for Swindon a few years back when he came on and created a goal. 

“He’s a technical player and a very grounded lad who fits into our ethos. We’re really pleased to get him on board.”
