Krystian Bielik: On-Loan Arsenal Defender Suffers Injury Setback

Jon Whitney has offered an update on the injury status of on-loan Arsenal defender Krystian Bielik, who is yet to make an Saddlers appearance since arriving at the club on Deadline Day.
Walsall manager Jon Whitney has spoken to club journalists ahead of Saturday's clash with League One leaders Blackburn Rovers, and offered an update on the injury status of on-loan Arsenal defender Krystian Bielik, who is yet to make an appearance since arriving at the club on Deadline Day.

Jon, who was speaking via the club's official website - Saddlers.co.uk, said; "Krystian has had a setback in his rehabilitation. Unfortunately he has tweaked his knee during late-stage rehab which has delayed the start of his loan spell with us.

"Krystian is due at the club in the next 10 days to meet with the squad and take part in some group sessions, and we look forward to Krystian joining the group in the next couple of weeks.

"Other than, we’ve got a clean bill of health for the Blackburn game. We’ll be getting them out on the training pitch again today. They’ve had an added spring in their step this week with the team at the top of the table coming here, so for me it’s a good challenge for us this week."
