Butterfield and Sangha loans extended until the end of the season

17 January 2018

Walsall midfielders Jordon Sangha and Milan Butterfield have extended their loan deals with Rushall Olympic until the end of the season.

Sangha has made 12 appearances for the Pics, while Butterfield has featured on 14 occasions.

“I’m very pleased to have my loan extended,” said Sangha.

“I started playing in central defensive midfield but then I got moved into the number ten role. It’s very different as you don’t work back as much and you’ve got to find ways to get on the ball.

“Playing senior football toughens you up, coming up against men week in week out.

“At first it was hard because I’m used to playing football on the ground and you come up against some teams who just lump it forward.

“I feel I’ve learned both sides of the game, where you need to do the ugly side and the pretty side.

“I’ve enjoyed my time there and I want to score more goals during the second half of the season.”

Butterfield commented: “It’s been a good time. I’ve enjoyed being around the players and I’ve enjoyed playing.

“I’ve played a few games and it’s been good to go out and play senior football. It’s much harder than reserves football – there’s more pressing and it’s more physical.

“The standard is good and I feel I’m progressing a lot – I need to just keep working hard and try to play as well as possible.”

The loans are subject to clearance, while there is also a 24-hour recall option in the Saddlers’ favour.
