Walsall Handed Major Boost in Pursuit of Scott Laird

As Walsall and Scunthorpe United continue to negotiate a deal which, if agreed, should see on-loan left back Scott Laird remain at Banks's Stadium until at least the end of the season, the Saddlers may have been handed a boost as the Iron have secured a loan extension of their own.

One of the major stumbling blocks in the negotiations had been the status of Norwich City defender Harry Toffolo, who had been due to return to his parent club following the expiration of his loan spell. however both Scunthorpe and the Canaries have confirmed that Toffolo will now remain with Graham Alexander's side for the remainder of the season.

It remains to be seen whether today's news will impact the Saddlers' pursuit for Laird, who will return to his parent club after his loan expires on Tuesday, 10th January, but it certainly can't hurt their case for a fresh agreement.
