Speaking via the club's official website - - Corey said; "I’m delighted to get the move done and I can’t wait to get going and gain some first-team experience with Walsall.

"I’ve been playing at the Banks’s on and off now for around three years with the development side at Villa so I feel used to the stadium which should will help me settle in well. I believe Walsall is the perfect club for me to develop and have my first loan spell away from Villa.

"It will definitely help my progression being in and around a professional environment. It’s going to help me knowing that points mean something, that you’ve got to fight for them because there is stuff on the line.
