Jack Fitzwater: "Coming to Walsall Was a No-Brainer"
On-loan West Brom defender Jack Fitzwater has spoken to the local press and revealed that he chose a return to the Saddlers over the chance to fight at the fringes of the Baggies' starting line-up.
The 20-year-old defender, who made sixteen appearances for the Saddlers after joining halfway through the campaign, is keen to prove his worth in a Walsall shirt before hopefully becoming a permanent fixture for the Baggies.

Speaking via the Express & Star, Jack said; "I have been told by the gaffer at West Brom that I am inches away from the first-team. But with the likes of Dawson, Hegazi and Bartley it’s hard for me to break in. I want to be playing games – I had such a positive season last season that I want to continue that and kick on.

"Coming to Walsall has given me the chance to do that. It was a no-brainer to come here when I was given the green light to go out on loan. I want to be playing games, establishing myself and proving myself – that is what I am trying to do."

Fitzwater then went on to discuss his desire to earn a place in the West Brom team, admitting that making his first-team debut would be a dream come true, he continued; "When Morro told me I am that close it makes you want it even more.

"I thought I was capable of playing in the first-team at West Brom. But we made a joint decision to allow me to come out on loan and it was the right decision. I have been there since I was seven-years-old, it’s more than half my life. To make my debut would be brilliant but to do that I have to do well for Walsall."
