Walsall Football Club are pleased to announce that midfielder Jack Earing has put pen to paper on a new contract that will keep him at the Poundland Bescot Stadium until the summer of 2025.
The 24-year-old recently recovered from a knee injury that kept him on the sidelines for 11 months but has since played a handful of times since returning to fitness.
Earing joined the Saddlers from National League side FC Halifax Town in the summer of 2021.
He showcased his talents in an impressive first season in WS1, scoring four times in 51 appearances in what was his first full campaign in the EFL.
His second season proved to be frustrating having picked up an injury early in the campaign before he tore his ACL in January 2023.
Earing made his comeback as a substitute during the Emirates FA Cup tie against Alfreton Town at the start of December and marked his first start against Wrexham with a goal.
He is now keen to kick on and reach the heights he hit in his first season at the Poundland Bescot Stadium.
“I’m really happy to have signed a new contract,” Earing said.
“It was a quick conversation between the gaffer and I, I’ve loved my time here and they have looked after me really well through my injury.
“I want to pay everyone back and I want to kick on.
“I’ve got another year and a half now and I want to establish myself in the team and be the best player I can be, push on with the lads.”
Head Coach Mat Sadler is delighted to have Earing at his disposal for another 18 months.
“I’m delighted Jack has signed a new contract,” Sadler said.
“Jack is an incredible person, a fantastic football player and the work he has done to get himself fit and ready is an inspiration to so many people within our group.
"I'm looking forward to continue working with him."
