Walsall trialist Patrick McClean, who is set to leave current club Derry City following the expiration of his contract, has spoken to the press and discussed his trial spell as he continues to train with the Saddlers squad ahead of a potential in January transfer.

Speaking via the Derry Journal, Patrick, who has been training with Walsall's First-Team squad over the past few weeks, said that he has fitted in well, but admitted that isn't the finished article and could benefit from more defensive coaching.

Patrick, who played for the Saddlers' development side during last week's victory over Burton Albion, said; "I was in for three days for them to have a look at me and I came in, worked hard and showed I was good enough to be there. He (Whitney) asked me to stay on for another few weeks and he’s giving me a chance. It’s down to me now. I’m training every day with the first team and have had a game with the reserves and I’m absolutely loving it.

"The facilities are great and there’s a gym where I can go in and do a bit extra. Walsall is 10 or 15 minutes down the road so it’s a good fit. It’s a great platform for me and I’ve been given a massive opportunity.”
