Southampton Keeper Leaves On Loan

Southampton have allowed goalkeeper Jack Rose to sign for League Two side Walsall on loan in order to play regular football. The 24-year-old, who came through West Brom’s academy, had loan spells with Accrington and Crawley before joining Saints in 2017 and has become a regular in the Under-23 side.

Both Rose and Saints were keen for him to get more regular action in a competitive environment, and the switch to the Saddlers suits. “It’s a local team for me, I am excited to be here and I am excited to be around a first-team environment and I can’t wait to get going,” Rose – originally from Solihull – told iFollow Walsall.

“Everyone has been very welcoming and, to come in so early into pre-season, it is great for any player because you are able to get a feel of the place and nothing is awkward for you then.” Saddlers boss Darrell Clarke added: “I’m pleased to get somebody of his calibre in for a season loan and I’m looking for him to push for number one. “He’s a good age now and needs to be playing competitive football. We are pleased to have struck a deal to get him here.”
