Walsall's latest summer signing, Scunthorpe United defender Scott Laird, has spoken to club journalists and discussed his desire to hit the ground running and get amongst the goals.

Speaking via Saddlers.co.uk, Scott, who has joined on loan until January, said; "I’m really pleased to be here. When it came up, I snapped the gaffer’s hand off and it was something I wanted to get done quite sharpish.

"I’m an attacking full-back and I love to get forward. I love keeping clean sheets but I do like to get forward, get the ball in the box and try to get a few goals myself. Every club I’ve been at I’ve scored goals and I want to continue that here.

"Walsall have always played an attractive style and that was definitely something that encouraged me to come here.

"I’m a loud voice on and off the pitch and hopefully my experience can help the younger lads progress. I’m really looking forward to working with the gaffer and I want to help Walsall get as high as they can."
