Kane Wilson Keen to Work His Way into Dean Keates' First-Team Plans

Kane Wilson Keen to Work His Way into Dean Keates' First-Team Plans

Following on from his comments earlier this week, Walsall's on-loan West Brom defender Kane Wilson has spoken to the local press and discussed his desire to force his way into the Saddlers' starting line-up, insisting that he is prepared to work hard to make his dream a reality.
18-year-old Wilson joined the club alongside Baggies colleague Jack Fitzwater on Transfer Deadline Day and has made ten first-team appearances for the Saddlers, with the majority coming from the substitutes’ bench


However, the full-back, who also enjoyed a twenty-two game loan spell with League Two outfit Exeter City last season, is aiming make the most of his opportunities in a bid to force his way into manager Dean Keates’ starting line-up.

Speaking to the Express & Star's Walsall correspondent Joseph Masi, Kane said; "The aim for me is to keep progressing and hopefully I can now take off. I’m enjoying my time here, the lads are quality.

"Now I am looking to work my way into the starting line-up and become a regular in the league. I was on loan at Exeter last season and that has definitely helped me here.

"It taught me about not getting in the team straight away and knowing what I have to do to get in the team. I’ve just got to keep working hard to improve. I’m quite an attacking player but I know that the defensive side of the game is just as important as getting forward."
