Deadline Day - Ismail Delighted to Join the Saddlers

10:04 pm Thursday, 31 August 2017  
New recruit Zeli Ismail has spoken to club journalists and revealed that he has always wanted to play for the Saddlers.
Following the news that he'd joined the Saddlers on a six-month loan deal, Bury winger Zeli Ismail has spoken to club journalists and discussed excitement as he joins a club which he has always admired.

Zeli, a product of Wolverhampton Wanderers' Academy system, was speaking via Saddlers.co.uk, and said; "When I was at Wolves I used to look at Walsall and think 'I’d love to be there. It was local and I knew a lot of lads there like Anthony Forde. Sharpy is here now and I played with him at Burton.

"I know what he’s about - and I spoke to the gaffer and we had a quick conversation. I’ve played against Walsall many a time and you could see the way they play and their philosophy - I want to be part of that.

"I like to get the ball to feet, make runs behind and help the team create. If I have a bad game, I'll still work my socks off. I was much younger playing with Sharpy - now I’ve got a lot more experience and there’s plenty of positives to come from me."
