Keates Confirms Josh Ginnelly Deal - Winger to Leave Early Next Week

Walsall manager Dean Keates has spoken to the local press and confirmed that winger Josh Ginnelly, who has missed the last three games, will be leaving the club when the Transfer Window opens on Tuesday, 1st January, but refused to confirm his destination.
The manager, who had just seen his side let slip a two-goal lead to hold the in-form Hatters to a draw, confirmed that a bid from an as yet unnamed club, believed to be Preston North End, has been accepted and he expects the deal to be completed in time for the New Year.

Walsall-born Keates, who speaking to several members of the local press, confirmed; "It’s been highlighted, he’s not been involved in the squad in the last few weeks. We’ve had a concrete bid, it’s all been accepted, everything’s in place and he will join the club he is going to, as of the first of January."

Josh, who has not been named in the Walsall squad over the last few weeks, has scored four goals in twenty-five first-team appearances and is out of contract in the summer and was believed to be high on manager Dean Keates' list of priorities as he looks to secure the futures of his squad's brightest and best, with many deals set to expire at the end of the current campaign.

The Coventry-born man, who was on-loan at Banks's Stadium during the 2016/17 campaign, spent last season on-loan with Lincoln City and National League - Play-Off winners Tranmere Rovers and was released by parent club Burnley shortly after the Prenton Park outfit had secured a return to the EFL.

Despite neither club confirming the news, Preston North End appear to be the club who have secured the wingers signature, with the North West club moving swiftly to get the deal over the line.
