Dobson 'Delighted to be Back' as Ex-West Ham Midfielder Pens Long-Term Deal

Newly returned midfielder George Dobson, who has joined the club on a two-and-a-half year deal, has spoken of his delight and eagerness to get going.
New Walsall signing George Dobson, who has joined on a two-and-a-half year deal from Dutch Eredivisie side Sparta Rotterdam, has spoken to club journalists and welcomed the opportunity to return to the Banks's.

George, who spent the entire 2016/17 season on loan from then parent club West Ham United, was speaking via the club's official website,, and said; "I’m delighted to be back. When Jon got in contact and said he was interested in taking my back, I threw myself at the chance. I loved my time at the club last year. I really felt like I kicked on as a player, particularly in the second-half of the season.

"It was my first loan and at the start I found it tough, coming into first-team football and I probably wasn’t quite ready. But as the year went on, I felt like I really improved and offered quite a bit to the team. I’m physically better now and technically ready to come in and hopefully help the team."
