Walsall have signed winger Tyreik Wright on loan from Aston Villa until the end of the season.

The 19-year-old has been a regular for Villa’s Under-23 side this season and is capped by the Republic of Ireland at under-19 level.

“I’m absolutely delighted to be here,” Wright said.

“I just want to thank the gaffer and Walsall for giving me the opportunity to come here on loan. I have been waiting a long time for this opportunity and I just can’t wait to get started.

“It means a lot to me (to be allowed out on loan) to be fair. I want to go out there and showcase my ability and show everyone what I have got.”
