Whitney Welcomes Justin Shaibu Deal

Walsall manager Jon Whitney has welcomed Brentford striker Justin Shaibu to the club.
Following the news that the Saddlers had signed 20-year-old Brentford striker Justin Shaibu on loan, first-team manager Jon Whitney has spoken to club journalists and welcomed the deal.

Jon, speaking via the club's official website -, said; "We needed some reinforcements up top and it’s important that Justin came in. I spoke to Dean Smith about him in the last transfer window, and they weren’t too keen to let him out but he needs games now.

"They brought him in from Denmark in 2016 and they see him as having a very big future. He’s got raw pace and he gives us that threat up front. Dean knows how we work here and that we can help to develop him between now and the end of the season. He’ll also come in and give us that attacking threat."
