The 19-year-old eager to play in League One...Promising youngster Jordon Sangha is hoping to feature for the Saddlers in League One before the end of the season.
The West Brom-born midfielder signed a new contract yesterday that will keep him at the Banks’s Stadium until at least 2019.
The 19-year-old made his first-team bow in our 1-0 Checkatrade Trophy victory at Leicester U21s in November but has yet to feature in the league.
And having now committed his long-term future to the club, Sangha has set his sights on making his league debut.
“I’m really happy to be here for another two years, “he said.
“I’ve been at Walsall for a long time and to be here for even longer is even better. I play with John Ward in the reserves who helps me and the manager has brought me on a lot.
“I’m learning and he always tells me where I can improve - and I would like to make my league debut before the end of the season.”
Sangha, who models himself on Saddlers skipper Adam Chambers, also feels he has benefited from his one-month youth loan with National League North side Telford earlier in the campaign.
“Everyone said to me when I came back that I seem older and more mature - it definitely helped me going to Telford,” Sangha added.
“I see myself as a deep-sitting midfield. I like to break up play and get other lads playing with the ball. I model myself on Skip – he’s a great role model.”
